Flying South

Yeah, summer can arrive ANY DAY NOW! Kim and I went on my coldest road ride in a long time today.

Temp at start: 27
Temp at end: 34

I KNOW, you're thinking I need to toughen up and stop whining (especially my mom who just had, what, -17 in Chicago??) but its COOOLLLLDDD, especially since it was windy today, AND we were on road bikes.

Thankfully we both have ample clothing to stay warm, but having to breathe through a buff to warm the air is a real drag.

The good news is that it will warm up into the 50's for Sandmann this weekend, although it will probably be raining.

Yeah, the buff thing is hard to manage, especially when you need to blow your nose or eat/drink. My coldest road ride was 17 degrees last week. I want global warming!
