Early Spring Rides - Little Bit of Everything

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Early Spring Rides - Little Bit of Everything

Skipped the morning group rides today, setting out solo around noon. Encountered cool, cloudy, warm, clear, rain, hail, then wind. You just can't simulate that experience in the gym.

Love it. Makes those summer rides oh so sweeter! You change clothing at all during the ride?

True, these chilly early season rides really make me appreciate those summer rides. Even more than normal.
