A December Ride

I didn't think I would get another ride in before Christmas, but with some sun out and 40 degrees on Monday morning I couldn't resist. Why should I?

So I pumped up the tires on my backup Klein bike in the basement and located some winter gear to wear.

I managed to get in a 26-mile route today despite a few patches of ice that I had to walk over along some path portions. 
At 40 degrees with sunshine and even a little wind I was plenty warm on the entire ride, although with the wind in my face and the sun behind the clouds on the way back things were a little less fun.

Still, it sure felt good to be back on a bike, even it if was for only 26 miles today. Any time that I can get a ride in on Christmas week that's a little plus for me before the real snow hits.
Season Miles: 2,300
