    been a long winter

    Its been a long lazy winter. I haven't done much riding I am such a wuss when it gets cold.Started
    back riding regular about 2 weeks ago with some 10 mi rides feels good to be back on the bike.
    I am getting ready to ride to my mom and dads for a visit a 35 mi round trip my longest ride since oct.
    LIFE IS GOOD

    If cold weather riding bothers you then try layering up. Invest in some shoe covers, fleece tops to go under the jersey, and knickers or tights and full finger gloves and a fleece beenie or balaclava. You will find that your speed will drop but you can get a few more months in before the winter chases you off the roads. we will still have cold weather for another month up here and if I hadn't learned to ride in the cold I would only have a 5 month season.

    Welcome back to the road.
