    Anyone else get a ride in today?

    I got in a few miles, had planned to go down to White Rock Lake, but the path was just too nasty after all the weather the last week and a half. Full write up here:

    My first day on the rollers, or how I decided to go out for a ride.

    (For those like Botto who have an attention span of a gnat, there's a short version a couple posts down, but I'm sure anyone smart enough to be living in the southwest has enough brain cells to get through my decently long post. )

    HELL YEAH!!! It was great!!! After being couped up in the house for almost two weeks, today's ride made me realize how much I truly love cycling. Only 8 of us plus a tandem team showed up this morning. We took it easy and had a great, pretty relaxed ride. I don't think we even averaged 17MPH. We did 45 miles through Sachse and Rowlett.

    Yep...stay off the paths until they have a chance to dry out and de-scuz though. You'll live longer.

    Looking forward to getting back on the commuter in the morning. I don't have any issues with the cold but that black ice last week was way too scary.

    Got a ride in on the roads today. One layer on bottom and one on top with a vest. It was great.
