No, it wasn't me riding along the Mohawk. Sorry
The 'bent rider was probably either still back there chugging along, or turned tail and ran at the sight of the hill because as we all know that 'Recumbents can't climb'.
First challange met and accomplished.
I anticipated that the Weather Wench was getting somewhat carried away with her lakeshore predictions. Based on the temperature of the lake and the amount of warmer weather the roads have been subjected to I hadn't really expected much accumulation on the roads.
My general direction of travel commuting to work is South Westerly and slightly up-grade all the way. I litteraly blew in to work at 04:00 this morning on a very rainy and wet Nor-Easter and hardly expended any effort at all. It's snowing now, so the ride home this evening may be a bit slower. I still will be suprised if the roads get much accumulation as the air temperature is expected to remain above freezing.
Tomorrow's challange, well I'm not looking foreward to it with quite as much enthusiasm as I had for todays challange.
