It's been unusually cold in the Los Angeles area lately. It was 37 Deg.F when I took off to ride to work this morning. In a "normal" year the temps don't get down below 45 Deg. F.
Plus, as I was rolling my trusty DaHon folder down the driveway, "Pfssssst" said the rear tire, going into blowout mode. Rather that fix that one (which I didn't have the time for, really) I switched shoes and rode my Ti GT road bike instead of the folder. Not so good on the Metro train section of my commute but wow, much nicer to be riding a real road bike instead of the folder!
Luckily, the GT still had the lights on, left over from my club ride last night. So not a terribly difficult (or time consuming) conversion. Still a cold ride though!
