We had great weather back in December, got a few rides in during Christmas week, with temps in the 40's. By February, it was below zero. Looking forward to spring now.

You'll all hiss since I'm in California and we don't really get the kind of winters everyone else does, but this is me on my way to Mt. Baldy about a month ago. See, we wear the tights and full jackets out here from time to time too!

Charlotte Racquet Club has indoor courts. I've played my best tennis on carpet in Germany. In CLT, though, I play with a wild and crazy and diverse group of people on the public courts. Kinda like what a Foo tennis group would be!

Props to merider1 for her participation. Even if it was probably staged on a 60 degree Hollywood set.

This pic was taken during the Stagecoach Century last month in the desert starting in a town called Ocotillo. It was a miserably cold ride, starting out at 30 degrees. I think the warmest it got that day was 47. Like merider1, I'm used to mild SoCal winters and this ride made me an official cold weather riding wimp.

Dang... I want snow.

I've never gone riding in the snow. Oh well. Canada would be fun either way.

Here's my winter gear...lol.



That was taken at the Butterfield Double Century on Saturday and I was already sweltering when I started at 5:30 a.m. I rode with my jersey fully unzipped most of the day and actually had to stop several times to dunk my head under faucets because I was having issues with overheating...we had record temps that day I think!
