    I like riding from Ocean City, MD to Rehobeth, DE and back, but one of these days I'm going to Dover instead of stopping at Rehobeth or maybe catch the ferry to "Jersey" bike there for a while and come back.

    I know. I am seriously ready for spring. At least my winter bike shoes arrived today. I bought them on end of season clearance, but I didn't figure I would get to TRY THEM this weekend.

    Bummed about the weather here too. New bike, family commitments the nice days this week, had to work late yesterday. Off for the next week (thank you spring break) but now it's cold, and I have little to no cold weather gear.

    Well I am off for good friday. So here is my planned ride. I have a couple things to drop off for a coworker so I am going to try and squeeze them in my pack and drop them off around mile 14. Good ride to try out my new shoes too. Very excited about having warm feet.

    Anyone want to join me?

    I don't know if anyone else bothered to try and ride over this holiday weekend. I was off on friday and went out. Cold and WINDY. Average winds at 15mph, 31deg when I left the house. But it was still nice to get on the road.

    Not my best time, did I mention the wind? I tried out some new roads to see if they will work for my night rides.

    I drove to Westminster for a club ride. Come 9:30, no ride leader. Called ride leader--ride cancelled due to wind & temps near freezing. I guess I should have checked my email one more time before leaving.

    On the way home, I stopped at the Providence Rd Park & Ride and did a ride to Jacksonville. On the way there, I got nailed in the leg with a bottle of water by some teenagers in a passing car. Didn't have time to get a license plate number.

    Anyway, it was a short ride--a little over 20 miles. The last few miles, snow flurries.

    I'm really, really, really getting tired of this weather.

    Yea this crap weather is getting very very old.

    I haven't had something thrown at me in years. I thought all of those punks grew up. Shame. I am also growing tired of this weather. I am only riding when I commute with the occasional nooner ride on the best days. Replaced my rear cass and chain which improved the ride but also need to replace the cranks.

    Well, this morning's bike commute to Towson (between 5:15-6:30AM) was a little soggy. This afternoon was ok. I made it home before the t-storm, but the legs felt a little on the dead side, so I took a nap.

    It's getting harder and harder to motivate myself to bike commute. It feels like New England around here. Cool temps, rain, mud and snow. It was easier to pedal in Feb. At least one expected frigid temps. I want sun! We should be in shorts and a T. Needless to say, it's still better than driving. All I have to do to motivate myself is listen to the traffic report. I haven't ridden a 1,000 miles yet. Last year I had 1K in mid March. Ok, enough of my whining. Charlie

    I was doing great during that spell of warmer weather. Now, I'm a little flat. The old bod doesn't like these big fluctuations in temps when it's suppose to relatively warm by now.

    Balto - you make me feel a bit better about my mileage. I'm at about 1400 miles through the first week of April, which is about on track with last year. With that, I should be on track for almost 5K commuter miles in 2007.
    God grant me the serenity to accept the hills and winds I cannot change;
    courage to challenge the cagers I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
