Cold November Ride...

It's Definitely November

The forecast for today was sunny and not too much wind. I decided to wait until my outdoor thermometer rose above 35° F before I headed out for a ride. I am glad I layered up. The last time I rode I was in short sleeves and shorts. Today I had my featherweight thermals on, plus some Hot Chili's for my legs, neoprene covers for my bike shoes, and my Pearl Izumi Kodiak winter bike shirt. Did I mention the baklava?

It was good to get out. I did just under 22 miles and could have done more but I didn't want to lush my luck with the cold weather. Hopefully I'll get at least a couple more rides in before the year is over.

A good a day as any to swap out the tires.

30 Days...

It has been 30 days since I have been on my bike. I think I am starting to suffer from withdrawal symptoms... Maybe next weekend...


It's November. Time to take off the summer slicks (Continental GP Attack/Force Combo) and pop on the winter tires (Continental Grand Prix 4-Season).

So Far...

So far this year I have logged 1,293.59 miles on my road bike. I just need to do 55.64 more miles to top last years 1,349.23 miles. Not bad for having a job in Downtown Boston and two daughters (5 & 2) at home.

No I just have to get that November ride in...
