Believe it or not, I was FINALLY able to get my beloved '85 Fuji out and go for a quick ride. Been so busy lately on weekends, it's not funny....

Just 2 weeks ago, the Richmond, VA area got buried in a foot of snow and it was around 24F for days on end. Everything shut down. I was off my school bus as they closed schools for almost the entire week!

Anyway, here we are on the 21st of December, and Mother Nature went all crazy again, and it's now an incredible 66F outside, but windy. I jumped at the chance to go for a quick ride while I could, since I'm on Christmas break from my bus, and don't go back until after New Years. 6.25 miles in 25:12 for a quick spin through the neighborhood side streets... Nothing special...

Here's the back entrance of the Collegiate School here in town.

Here's a view looking back up the side road called Sierra, and the wet road and leaves, pine needles, twigs, etc... all over the place. I was careful not to make high speed turns!
