Very first road ride of 2012
my normal 24 mile lunch-time route from work in Clinton, CT. Took the cross bike with fenders and winter knobby tires.
Average 15.2mph which felt very slow but I just checked and that was exactly the same as last years first ride. I'm out of shape but at least not any worse than last year.
Quite a bit different from last years first ride on Feb 17, 2011 where there were 3 to 4 foot piles of snow along every rode. Today it looks and feels like April out there.
back to skiing this weekend. Let's hope March saves the ski season.
