Getting above freezing, FINALLY! Taking the winter beater out today, hoping for a 20 mile ride. Wind is blowing hard from the south, bringing in the warm air. I am so ready for warm weather to get here. I didn't make it to Tucson for a "fix" this year, so above freezing is my fix! Fenders and studs, there are still icy patches out there, still need the added traction. Maybe next weekend I can take the road bike!

I agree, though I was able to explore new temperature lows for my commute. I left the house a couple times when it was less than 5F. I know that's wuss territory for the Minnesotans and the Yoopers, but it was significantly less than my previous low, probably around 15F.
I prefer you contact me via email.
