two 25-spots broken up into morning and afternoon rides to take advantage of "windows" in the storm passing through.
skies still opened up on me pretty good on each ride tho. torso dry thanks to the rain jacket but otherwise, some clean up,
wipe down and hang dry situations. still, nice to be out. a few rainbows about.

a local c-note + a twenty-six spot. ran into some bonk difficulty around mile 121. luckily, i had half a pack of peanut m & m's in the jersey pocket.
took about 5 mins before i felt good again.

1 hour on the trainer in Northern Italy Dolomites. Breathtaking in more ways than one. Beautiful sunny day at 89* there while outside my window, 44* F.

was in your neck of the woods today. stumbled across that whittier greenway trail that ends/starts at pioneer, close to the sgrt.
filed that one away for a potential train ride up to the area for day riding.

30 miles in very cold 40 deg temps. I do not like to ride in temps below 50 as I just dont have the equipment to stay warm being from a warm weather area.

added: trying to keep my head, ears, and face warm. Also have a heavy jersey, jacket, wool socks, some gloves that were not really working, and full leg tights which worked really well out of everything.
