Here it is mid-January and have had bare pavement all winter season. Great for riding on our steep hills around town and outlying areas. Just 6 more weeks and it’s time to transist to spring training.

You caught that same cold winter air we did. Windy, 29deg, spitting snow, and yes on the winter clothes again.

Thank God that has passed. Today, near 80 and hitting the open road.

Went for a snowride this evening. Yup. May 8, or is it March 8? The blustery, stiff North wind froze my face like anything January could do. Nonsense, I tell ya. Pretty much goes along with this...

Nice ride! I like your route. That is the weather we had just recently and hopefully wont again this spring. Today was a sunny 49 and had the Cannondale Criterium Series out for some hill rides.
