Get out and enjoy
Get out and enjoy
Except I'm in the PNW where the outlook is "much below" for temperature and I'm looking at snow falling. :-(
Yep, new shorts will be arriving this week. I may need to swim out to the mailbox though to get them.
Want to be or not, we are an Empire. Use it wisely.
I'm also in the PNW on the north Oregon Coast. Had a major rain and wind storm last night. I'm glad to see the mid and eastern part of the U.S. is finally getting some nice wx. They've really gotten hammered this winter.
I thought this thread was titled "Pack up your winter Kilt...."
Here in the Boston area, we are experiencing yet another monsoon type rain storm, with two to five inches expected, depending on where you are. This is not good. A lot of people are still pumping and mopping up from the last one.
But, there is talk of low 70's by Friday. It has not been this warm, this early around here for a long time. I am thinking, "Vacation day" for riding. Who's with me???

Every time I think about it the weather guy starts talking snow again. Will wait til the end of April to be safe.
As President Bill Clinton said, "well it is the first day of Spring, a sure sign Al Gore's global warming season has started."
I was nice here today. Sun was out, no appreciable wind, about 60 deg F.... finally!
We enjoyed an after-work ride, but Mother Nature still had the last laugh. She provided my front tire a sharp stone about the size of a grain of rice. That's all that was needed.
Temps alleged to be nice for the rest of the week, but winds on Thursday, my next chance to ride, forecast to be 25 - 30. Figures.
Not putting the winter kit away just yet, but I was able to pull out the summer bike a few weeks ago when we had a really warm spell. The warm spell only lasted less than a week, but it lasted just long enough to tune the bike up and make some changes.
yep already washed and stored my winter commuting pants. reflective tape and all! boy did they need a wash! now I need to do the snow pants.
cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
