My Festive 500 is coming along okay.

Christmas Eve: -15C (5F). 50 kms/31 miles w/ heavy snow and thin lanes in the bike paths, separated by rutted ice. Glasses kept fogging up & freezing a thin layer of ice so I took them off and went with eyelash icicles.

Boxing Day December 26th: -12C (10F). 37 kms/22 miles w/ bike path snow lanes and rutted ice.

December 27th: -9C (15F) 50 kms/31 miles AM commute.

9,675 of 10,000 kms for 2022

138 of 500 kms Festive 500.

if it was not snowing some days or freezing or very cold and raining it would not be a big deal. we did 21 miles today it started out at 52 at 8:30 turned into 38 to 42 and rain with snow /slush in places still. don't like to ride though such on the tandem.

I completed my Festive 500 here in and around Seoul, South Korea with some extended commutes to work, a longer afternoon ride on the 28th and then an imperial century late in the week on the 30th to really get some kms under my belt. The century put me just over my yearly goal of 10,000 kms, and I went out the next morning to do 30 kms (18-19 miles?) to finish off the Festive 500.
