26 Degrees at 8:30 am. That was the beginning of a stellar day on the Surly.
This was my first ride as the ride leader in nearly a year. No one showed. The weather was pretty extreme for most recreational cyclists, which is really what we are;0) Having the right gear, though, is all it takes to make cycling, even in these extreme cold conditions comfortable. There were a few cyclists at ACT. We chatted. Then I headed home. It was awesome! I always feel better when I’ve gotten in a good ride.
One of my brothers, from Texas, was in Richmond visiting my Dad, so I got to see him and my young nephew, who has almost reached 6′. AND it was my nephew’s birthday. What a great day;0) Awesome day. I feel great.
My next tour is scheduled to begin 3/7. I’m flying to Texas and meeting up with a cyclist from NM. We hope to cycle from near Austin, TX to Tallahassee, FL. Just having this new tour on the horizon is enough to shake the winter doldroms. Woohoo!
Go make you’re own breeze and remember: if you’re not having fun; you’re in the wrong gear.
