    Got out of the metro Knoxville bubble for a change and had cycling escapades in Blount County.

    An quiet, early morning 23-mile jaunt along the Little River.



    [File photo]

    Then, in the late afternoon, a 27-mile ride up to Cades Cove.



    [File photo]

    Unfortunately, I did not have time to ride around the cover--just climbed up there and turned around. First time I've done a multi-mile climb in a year, probably. I could tell.

    Interestingly, there's way less traffic on January afternoon than there is in the summer. Except I did have a couple cars coming after me right when I reached the small tunnel. I was nervous the lead might hit me because it was moving and there wasn't a lot of light [late afternoon]. Then, when I exited the tunnel, the rocky face along the road shot this chunk of glare ice just a few feet in front of me. Couple seconds later and it could have been disaster.

    I also saw a deer along the road. No tracking necessary.

    Good day of riding, except for the balaclava. Much more peaceful than West Knox at 5 p.m.

    I am around. My job is very busy at the moment from the cold. Main are breaking all over the place, and I worked through the holidays. I'll get caught up here shortly.

    I think it might be a little warmer here tonight than it is in Knoxville. It was 45° a few minutes ago, when I went out with Benson.

    it is 3 degrees here. No that is not a typo. The wind chill is -13. That is Fahrenheit for all you foreigners. If I wanted to live someplace this cold, I'd still live in Colorado. Holy crapola.

    There's no place to go to escape it... not even the Sunshine State. I might actually have to fire up the heater tonight. First time in about 2 years.

    Air temp of -21° right now, wind chill significantly lower. Expected high today of -13°. I don't think that anyone is leaving the house today - not for work, errands, food, not for anything. Well, other than a couple quick trips outside to let the dog do her business.

    -23. Wind chill is -56. Schools are closed statewide.

    i just don't get the womenz. So the newly ex ms coasting has informed me that she will now be willing to ride my ladies bike and go riding with me because we are now just friends. before we broke up she refused to ride the bike because my ex ex rode it and i had bought it in order t ride with the ex ex.

    wut.
