27!? Good dog that is cold. You are seriously dedicated. I am more humorously dedicated and draw the line at 40. Unless she is really pretty, then maybe 38.

the other day it was just as cold, & it felt cold. Today, it must've been more humid, making it feel warmer. I'll be going out tomorrow, supposed to be around 40F... I hope the wind stays in the single digits.

In another week even less light when we go back to standard time. In addition, not enough heat!

i was always told that if I'm outside & am cold, I'm not active enough. Pretty sure it was there way of copping out in buying clothes.

I start to dread the outdoorsy rides when that white stuff starts to stick & the salt trucks are blasting debris everywhere.

With that thought in mind, if you head out only wearing your cycling shoes and socks, you should get one helluva workout. Oh and wear a helmet just in case you slip on some ice.

Did a 66 mile devils ride. The fog has been increasingly getting thiccc with each roll. At least the fog didn't create a sheet of ice on the eye pros this time.

A second nice day in the upper fifties. Road 35 miles to round out 100 for the weekend. For the rest of the week work gets in the way so a little trainer spinning while watching YouTube videos. Days are getting shorter.

A quick 20 miler. Was going for a longer ride until the hail started. Pictures from the sunny start.

28 miles 2000’+ climbing. It was a lovely day at 45* with light drizzle which turned into pouring rain. Kinda sucked except I am getting noticeably stronger out of the saddle climbs and for greater distances.

Got home drenched even with all my gear. No pictures - didn’t want to stop.

got in 35 today, weather was iffy at best, not cold, not hot, not really in the middle. It was just fricking humid, with spot showers, and flipping wind. The rain was really cold which was not appreciated, but then the sun would pop out and just roast the water off the road which increased the humidity. Since it has been pretty dry here lately, just made for some nasty grimy roads. I was not a fan of today's ride which is why I cut it short.
