    Holy Crap! Its 60 and windless, time to sneak out of work early and go for a ride!

    Maybe there will be an end to winter in Montana!

    With my luck lately, if it were 60 and windless, there would be torrential rain!

    Congrats on the good weather. Make hay while the sun shines.

    It is amazing how wind-aware cycling makes you!

    There is a time to resign oneself
    to old age and infirmity. You first.

    I was going to say that anybody who posts legally on this forum isn't windless excepting the ladies that is.

    I hate wind. Especially when the wind is in your face on both the out and back portions of the ride.

    I'm not 60 yet, but beans keep me from being windless.

    Follow-up I was a very nice ride, I rode 25 miles in 1 1/2 hour. Slow, but as physically I am 53 and windless (lungs) and have been on my trainer about 6 times in the last month its not bad. I would say it was wonderful but the trees are still leafless and the grass is brown, although the snow capped mountains that surround Bozeman set a nice back drop to all rides here.

    LOL, what is up with that, I keep thinking that, Ok, on the way home when I'm tried out, there SHOULD be a tailwind but it seems no matter what direction I head it's ALWAYS a headwind When we used to hike, it seemed we got tailwinds but riding on the bike, I'm always cursing the dreaded headwind, ok I'm a windwuss, now ya know, happy?

    50F and sunny this morning- and I was working. Gardening duty again this afternoon so hopefully I wake up tomorrow to a bright warm and still day.

    No chance- the sun and warm bit will be there according to the forecast- but I would have to get riding before 6 am in the low 30's to be able to get a ride in without wind.

    But I am offwork Monday and Tuesday- just as the rain is forecast to return.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    92 degrees here. I enjoyed a typically middle eastern breakfast which is, I'm still tending to giggle about after 30 years, called 'foul mesdames' - its a porridge of white beans in garlic and tomatoes.
    Windless - better ask the stoker after a lovely 40 mile tandem ride. From my point of view it was just fine.
