Feb. Ride

It was finally warm enough in Minnesota yesterday to get the LT out for a ride. It was 43 degrees. Did only 20 miles, but sure was great. Now to wait for spring.

Re: Feb. Ride

Many a morning in North Florida we begin rides in the hi 20's to 30's. BUT, with the expectation it will soon be 50 or 60. That's a BIG difference for you folks of the northern latitudes.

Stay warm, Spring is just around the corner for MN, I'd say what? About June??

Re: Feb. Ride

On Friday, the sun was shining and the temp made it all the way up to 24F here in upper NY. I took her out for a 55 mile run up and down the Northway. With the full ski out fit and the grips and seat in burn mode, it wasn't a bad ride at all. The toes started to loose feeling in the last 10 miles but it was all worth it. Thursday and Friday are supposed to hit the 50s and 60s. I may have to break out the summer riding jacket...
