A very chilly 12 miles today, temps between 29 and 31F. Had to avoid a few ice slicks en route, but I carried on a lovely conversation with an equally crazy gentleman riding a Honda Grom motorcycle, as we both caught every red stoplight while we traversed through center city Bethlehem and I was able to catch up to him for six consecutive lights. His motorcycle actually had a smaller footprint than my bike!

20 miles today. 30+ mph winds. Never could get my core temp up. Not enough layers. Still beats the heck out a being on the trainer. I know it wasn't actually this way but it felt like I was going against a head wind the whole time.

Finally got out and managed a 25.3 mile ride today.

Working 85 hours a week doesn't leave much time for cycling anymore.

11 miles on the Schwinn today over salt stained roads and a couple inches of snow on the short trails. 25 degrees. No wind. Sweet. Picture is from Christmas morning, 2018.

114.6 miles. first big ride of the year. it was a slowpoke fest so i guess it doesn't count. the 5,000k+ elevation gain slowed me down more than i would like to admit.

https://www.strava.com/activities/2140120051

39 degrees @ union station dtown la at the 7am start according to the garmin. that is approx 21 degrees colder than my preferred morning starting temp.
i knew there was a reason i hated mornings...

I rode exactly zero miles today. But I got in 2 hours on the Cycleops Fluid 2 trainer.

THIS year I'm going to be ready for Spring! No holding back!

Naaaa, distance is where it's at. More satisfaction in doing a century than maintaining a certain speed.

Finally had a chance to ride - first time in five plus months. 21 miles, most on gravel, which is a first for me. Flat lands and e-bike feels like cheating.

50k after work. Managed to get in just after the sun set. Felt good to be riding again after a winter off the bike.

Back on the bike after a 12 day holiday that included a week long cruise. Moon was awesomely full with enough reflection to light up the roads permitting riding without front lights on. Got out at 12:52AM and had a slow but enjoyable 104 mile ride.

Did 15 miles today and froze my butt off, even though it's 50 and sunny with low wind. I really need for it to be about 10 degrees warmer before I tackle the great outdoors.
