Y'know, even though you're from what us northerners would consider "a warm state" I'm willing to grant you the honor and distinction of having taken a "sneak ride" because a.) were surprised as hell it was 70, b.) your temps dropped back down to the 30's overnight, and c.) you're riding in the 40's today. Mother Nature turned her back a little, and you took advantage of the old gal. Congrats.
Ahhh your killing me. I soo want to get out but the roads just aint having it around the lakeshore. Its either been rain or wind the last few days.
I did get a ride in on the Pumpkin a few weeks ago so that helped.....But I am already starting to go stir crazy.
Maybe Ill get out this week yet.
Hey YZ, haven't heard from you in a while. You do any riding this summer?
I think you might have missed yer window, man! Felt like I was getting away wit merder when I was out riding on Saturday! Shoulda' been there. Shoulda' been there (except when I almost blew through a stop sign on account of the fog. You wouldn't have wanted to be there then.)
Far as I can see, if you go riding this week you'd be entering the "extreme despiration ride" category, but if y'do it let me know after
you get back!
The kids are here for the holidays but they were occupied for a while so I did my 35 mile loop down to Bridgeport. Temps were in the high 40's so I got a chance to test my new heated jacket liner. MMM.. toasty!
Well done seppel. Pretty pleased with yourself weren't ya? Kind of reminds me of that "money stolen is better than money earned" saying from that pool movie with Paul Newman.
40 and sunny for the 29th. At least one of my bikes will be out for a spin. I have not been out riding since the weekend of Thanksgiving due to snow and ice.
Err...yeah. Did manage a nice 6 hour ride here in NC. Took the Blue Ridge Parkway and circled back on some nice twisties. Beautiful combo of blue skys and fog. Temps 45-65.
Being from upstate NY, I can fully understand the joy of a December ride like this.
Bring the spring!
I'm liking these little cool-weather micro ride reports.
