    Bill great news on your comeback. Keep up the good work and deciding whether to push or hold back!

    Did 50 today and my average for the year. Hoping to enter Everglades Snowbird Sunday next and do a Century. Should be easier than first one last December with just two of us and little drafting. First group ride few weeks ago with Storm Riders. Lots of stop signs and they go 23 to 25 which was tough for me, at least didn't get dropped out of the blocks!

    I rode during the Kentucky/Wichita State game and I felt like I was in the zombie apocalypse. Roads totally deserted except around the Walmart. At the mid 40s it was a bit nippy for my taste, although I didn't feel cold until I stepped into my house. Weird. UK won, BTW.

    Now nothing will be accomplished this week as UK faces off against Louisville. Talk about apocalyptic.

    Ten miles this afternoon and yes, low- to mid-forties felt too cold.
    UK and Louisville will be playing? Living in Hoosier Nation, it seems as if college ball season is over.

    Saw an article in Forbes where Loovul is the most profitable NCAA Basketball Program in the nation. And yes, I expect folks are lining up on both sides for that game. Another great time to get out and ride??? or is it at night?

    It will be Gotterdammerung, for sure. I'd rather be riding, but I'm on call that night

    192.3 at the Solvang Double on Saturday. Great day for a ride, and it was a great ride with my fellow Bull Shifters.

    A puny five mile ride after work today. Still doesn't feel like Spring in the low forties.

    Sunday, 15, miles, another beautiful Spring day.
    Monday, 30, miles, partly sunny and kind of cool.

    Edit:Tuesday, 15 miles, really stiff north winds, 25-30 kts and gusts to 35, makes for an interesting north bound leg or three.

    First time on the bike in five days, thanks to a flu virus that spread through my family members over the weekend. Decided to do 30 miles on the trainer rather than ride outdoors and started to cough and sneeze quite a bit around 17 miles into the ride. Kept on riding and stopped at 20 miles. Not much of a cardio workout today because of sinuses draining but at least I got the legs going.

    Another small mileage ride - 8 miles - but the sun was shining and even if it was barely in the forties it felt good. Included a couple of short but steepish hills in a local subdivision. Still recovering from way too little riding during the Dark and Cold Months.

    Wednesday was a short 15 mile ride after a long day at work, we bid on a courtroom build out, unsuccessfully. It was unusually cool out the ls jersey and full fingered gloves were in order. Time was much better as the winds had abated, thankfully.

    40 solo miles at my typical 17-18 mph average. Usual brisk March winds but otherwise sunny and temps around 60 degrees. Our regular Tuesday/Thursday night rides start back up next week so just maybe I'll have some riding partners.

    Managed 15 miles this afternoon, nothing special but very satisfying to ride some with no real goal or special requirements. Kind of chilly with a bit of a wind chill from the SE gusty wind.

    It wasn't a very nice day outside today. I contemplated on riding outdoors but bike was still in the house from yesterday's trainer ride so the trainer won out. Another 20 miles on the trainer.

    Winter might be finally loosening it's grip on us here. The thermometer hovered slightly above freezing for a brief moment. Did a round about ride to the grocery store for about 8.5 km. Best ride so far this year.

    First outdoor ride on the bike in seven days. Weather forecast called for rain this morning but the sun came out and the sky was blue and I made a beeline to MUP for a great 35 mile ride, despite the steady, 15 mph winds.

    Another ten mile ride after work......loves daylight savings time.
    Starting to feel as if I'm recovering from minimal miles over the Winter - with gravity's help, was able to hit 30mph down a hill and then also to maintain 6-7mph up another hill. Average speed nothing to brag about but feeling stronger overall.

    9 miles yesterday in the cool, damp air on an overcast day. I threw in a few rollers and my legs feel it a bit today. It is supposed to hit 60+ tomorrow for the first time since the end of oct. Yeah!

    As an aside the sap is running so its time to make maple syrup.
