In the low 70's, sun shining, breeze under 3mph, I enjoyed a great hour in the sun!

Temperature here in Wales was 53 and the wind speed 18mph, but the sun was shining so I had a great 30 mile ride on my mtb that took in the hills and the coast. You have to make the most of the good days.

wind chill 20 above here, sounds like a great day to ride where you are, but only an hour?

28 here today, cooler down by the bay....sub 20 with the wind chill.

Took a blast round the park on the fatty....only 15 miles but a good workout.

Everything finished up reasonably warm...toes.....fingers....

If it would stay like today for the next 4 months I'd be happy..

We had that nice weather here on the 11th. It was 70, sunny, with maybe a 5 to 10 mph breeze. I took the afternoon off and got the wife out for a ride. Last day for shorts and short sleeve jerseys for 2014, I'm afraid. Today's high is 37 and overnight we're expected mid 20's.
