Cold and Windy Tuesday

We rode after work...at 6PM the wind was blowing hard at Canada and 92 and it was cold. We rode our tandem to Alpine and Portola - 26 miles. The ride out was comfortable but the wind and cold on the way back reminded us of winter.

Here is a guy that agrees with us...

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.

We did a ride up Montebello Road ... coming down was really cold ... should have brought my jacket with me. I forgot how cold it can get coming down.

I was out at 2 p.m. and I was thinking it felt like a winter day. Well, we're spoiled around here though aren't we It was still a pretty good day to ride. No rain!

I went to ride on Skyline during lunch time. It was foggy, windy and pretty cold.

Went for a Winters loop. Wind was blowing 25-33 in the flats along the 505 against the wind run.

That's why I stayed home. My face feels like it's had microdermabrasion after a ride like that.

More power to you who braved the winds.
