so-- is it warm enough in Denver for an age ride? Maybe make it metric... or '71 blocks', or 71 car lengths...(using SMART cars is cheating) Hope you have a great day and that you are well on your way to complete recovery. And that your wife is better from her fall.

train safe-

OK, you convinved me. It is a balmy 48F outside, wind about 5 mph. I will go for a couple of hours - heck - maybe 71 minutes? Or more?

Oh, I like the idea of using minutes in place of miles for those of us who celebrate winter birthdays

Well, I did get out for a couple of hours. It never warmed up much - stayed about 48F, which is a nice riding temperature. As I am limited to my mtn bike for a bit - a few more weeks of healing - I went REALLY slow - but I had fun.

My son and daughter-in-law are taking us to an Indian Buffet for brunch shortly to celebrate my birthday. Yummy!!

Thanks!

I'm pretty much a solo rider, so I doubt it. Have fun, though.
