    Bike Log 2013

    First road ride of the season today. I know I should be skiing but we had to stay home this weekend for family commitments.

    24 miles, 15.6mph , hilly ride on a heavy cross bike with fenders. Beautiful day 45-50 degrees. Roads were in surprizingly good shape. It seemed weird to be road riding 2 days after we got 12" of snow. The sad part was this 12" was already totally gone from south facing hillsides .

    Back to skiing next weekend.

    Edit: I live in Southern Ct near the coast. Hopefully the snow isn't melting as fast up north.

    You got outside in great weather that is what is most important.

    Got in another 30 mile ride Sunday mid-afternoon. I'll ride as long as it's 45 degrees or more.
    Going to try again tomorrow afternoon.

    I wasn't planning on riding in Torrington unless you want to go?

    Still a touch too cold for me to get on the road. Mostly it is the wind, actually. Otherwise it is pretty close to my threshold. Definitely a fair weather roadie.

    Great 24 mile ride today. Just under 50 degrees. The frogs (peepers) were out already here in southern CT as well as many flowers on south facing lawns.
    It's supposed to be 55 degrees and sunny here this weekend but I'm heading north for spring skiing at least for Friday and Saturday, then back home Sunday for family Easter dinner.

    Awesome skiing yesterday at Mount Snow but home today for family easter weekend. We had most of the day free so my wife says lets go for a ride. Her first ride of the year and my 4th. She said lets do out usual hilly 64 mile training ride today, Okayyyy.
    Incredible weather made for perfect riding although I have a sore rear end and quads. Kinda feels like we rode a century, we both have that nice exhausted but fulfilling feeling.
    I love this time of year.
