Out with the DR yesterday which has seen much garage time since '09 when I brought home the DL. Typical large temperature variation for the desert, low and high for the day....20 F- 60 F.

Smile Ah yes....

Got out for a leisurely 150 miler this past Sunday with a group of five for a big loop circumnavigation of the Kinzua Resevoir from Ellicottville, NY, Warren and Bradford. PA. Temps in the high 60's. A goodly amount of bikes were observed of all types including a couple of Stroms! Monday I rode to work in less warm but still moderate temps and today I am leaving for Newark, NJ for a couple of days but not on the bike - bummer! Last year I rode to Dec. 15th, will have to see what the next few weeks brings weatherwise to see if I break the record.

ok.no riding.
but I'd rather sit in a pool than a snowbank.

Looks like I may commute on the Wee through Thanksgiving........40's - 50's through next week!

If this is global warming, those in Mn. approve!

Default i feel ya...

Here in sunny Los Angeles, I recently had to switch from my mesh jacket to my solid one. It's always a difficult time of the year for me... it'll be even harder when I have to find the liners. I'm sure they're around here somewhere.

Could be worse. You could have broken your hand and been unable to ride for 6-8 weeks....oh wait...that's just me.
