    Well..... I almost rode today. Drove my mom to the post office and was going to ride from there. I have a mini van (yeah yeah no laughing.. lol). And I usually take my front wheel off and put the bike behind the front seats. So I got my bike shoes on, gloves on, and the water bottles on the bike, wallet under seat... all that good stuff. Get the front wheel out and notice a big gash, the rubber is peeled back and there is even a nick in the kevlar underneath ( I guess its kevlar i dunno).. But I do know that the tire already has a slight bulge to it. Soooo NO ride. ... Will try again tomorrow.

    Friday and Saturday the weather was terrible. Today was cold by my standards but I gave it a go any way, the temps in the low 60s and light wind from the NNE & cloudy. Christmas decoration are poppping up every where.

    Todays weather was terrible. It could not make up it's mind if it wanted to rain or shine, but I gave it a go any way, the temps in the low 70s that was a good thing and a light wind from the NNE & cloudy. I am getting off to a very slow start this month. The weather has been cold and wet.

    Finally got to ride today after a week of iffy weather and other responsibilities getting in the way! Did my usual 22.3 miles on the trail. Lost count of how many tortoises I saw, they were out in force today. I waited 'til the afternoon to go and battled a head wind all the way to my turnaround. The tailwind was nice coming home, at least until it shifted to the side and felt like a headwind again. I was actually feeling a little hot today as the temps here were in the low 80's. I'll have to get out earlier tomorrow, especially since they are predicting rain again in the afternoon.

    With all the rain, my soccer team hasn't been able to practice. It was so bad on Saturday that the county asked our league to cancel all the games so we wouldn't tear up the waterlogged field. I hope it is dry this weekend!

    Got a NEW basket for my MTB that will hold more packages so i'm back to at least riding to the post office. Monday I made the 6 mile round trip to the post office. Today made 2 trips to the post office .... Short rides are better than no rides I guess.... I do try to push it the whole way there and back. But pushing it for me now isn't much ... LOL.. Ohh got rained on coming home monday... was kinda cold.... But at least it waited till i had dropped off the packages..

    Todays weather was great. The temps in the high 70s to low 80s and sunny that was a good thing the bad thing was the 16/23 mph wind out of the SW. My return trip was 12 miles into that wind.

    Got my massive 6 mile ride in again today.... About a 15mph headwind for the 3 miles to the post office. Pushed it as hard as I could the whole way there. Managed to drop my friends 16 year old son (who is also my friend lol).. Added up the weight of the packages when I got back. Including the basket it was about 24lbs. Extra 24lbs into the wind.... DOH!!

    Yep.... Got my post office ride in again today.... Kind of chilly, not as windy as yesterday though. Rode an extra 4 miles or so before coming home so... got about a 10 mile ride in. .... A short ride is better than no ride... (that's my motto for now)...

    Todays weather was great. The temps in the low to mid 70s and partly sunny that was a good thing, the bad thing was the 15 mph wind out of the ESE. My return trip was 12 miles into that wind. Ran into an old friend that I had not seen for about 3 months and rode with him for about 12 miles. He had been on a club ride earlier and was trying to get in some extra mile. It was good to see him.

    Between the weather, health issues and life in general, I am finding it really hard to find time to ride! Finally got out again today for 22.5 miles on my old Puch. Even though there wasn't much wind, it still felt like it when I was pedaling, plus it must have been from the side as it felt like a headwind in both directions. I hate that! I saw quite a few tortoises today, including one who hissed at me as he pulled back into his shell. I didn't know they could do that!

    I am now 81 miles from my goal of 3000 miles for the year, hopefully the weather will hold out for this week and I'll get there. Even if I don't, this is my best year ever which isn't bad considering I didn't start riding seriously this year until June when I recovered from abdominal surgery. Maybe next year I'll stay healthy and go for 4000.

    Really nice day today! Did the usual 22.3 miles. Light wind out of the west so it felt like a headwind in both directions. Trail was pretty empty, surprising for such a nice day.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany. Just ordered a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105 to replace my "destroyed" CAAD 10 2.

    It was sunny and "warm" (45F when I left home) so I took the Kona out to Yellow River park for a ride.
    Had a great ride.

    Very cold today by my standards anyway, low 50s when I left and low 60s when I got back. The cold didn't bother me as much as the westerly 19mph wind did. I was way over dressed but anything below 65 just pushes my limit.
