Getting old and slow, 44 miles at 17.7 MPH average speed today. Some strong headwinds out there but I survived.

Lousy terrible year, lucky to break 1,000 miles but hey, I got in 74 miles for December so far!

Another 33 miles today, a little over 100 for the month so far.

Cranky Old Bastard jersey of the day. Lots of laughs and comments from other riders.

Bought this one as a beater jersey at a good price, $24. Looked OK on the website but when I opened the package, I was impressed with the nice colors. I'm digging this one!

Another 12 miles in the dark of night, well with lights on the bike.

Puts me up to 117 for the month so far.

Picture of the darkness behind me on the streets last night. Rather cool, refreshing and exhilarating!
