First ever February century!

I tried hard to get a January century during my first ever January ride. We couldn’t complete the century because we got caught in a snow shower (white out conditions) from mile 60 to 70. We had to get bailed-out by a SAG. However I did get my first ever February century on Feb. 5th! This was a big deal to us because it's almost impossible to get a century in Dec.-Feb. in this area during most winters. Only 31 more to go to get my goal for the year.

We just did a Feb century last week, but no attaboys for us - the century was in Palm Springs, CA. Actually, the conditions were very harsh wind-wise.
