I got out but nothing like April thru November rides. It was brisk, windy and sunny. I managed 37.5 miles with my Allroads through Weston, Wayland, Natick, Sudbury, Concord, and Lincoln. I don’t recall seeing 1 other cyclist. Several runners although.

Yes I finally got a proper fat bike winter ride in!!
15 to start but sunny and no wind. Fresh .5" of snow, 4" tires. We did probably 9 miles of trail and 27 miles of snowy asphalt, 36 miles total. Pics a little blurry but you get the gist!

Went out early this morning hoping to do 40ish miles or so, but it was low 30s and quite windy and I stupidly forgot to put my hat on. We have had such a wimpy winter, that I have only worn it a few times this year. Had to turn around. Brrrrrr.
