Smile New Years day ride 2011

Got out today for a great ride. Temp when I started at 11:30 was +5c and rain. Did about 120km in 3 hours of 100% rain. Had a great time.

Re: New Years day ride 2011

Yeh, it was good to be out today - first time on the LT since 11/30. We went down the road a bit for lunch, and back. Crappy overcast skies with drizzle, but 54 degrees is 54 degrees.

Me too! Got out today for a short two hour ride. The weather was perfect, around 54c. I just wished I had more time but house schedule just didn't allow it. Maybe next time.

Watched football all day today so I didn't get to ride at all but I'll make up for it next week riding out to Texas.

Out today too. A bit windy, temp was 20 degrees at 2 PM, sun shinning and the roads were clear. YEEHAA! Starting off the new year right!

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.
