Was out ridin' dirty yesterday...

Monday 9-Jan-11 for a little over an hour. Anybody else out there bravin' the cold? I was the only bike I saw and the guy with the plow on the front of his truck gave me kind of a funny look. LOL!!! Just curious who's still out there.

I rode a little yesterday, but we were pushing 50 degrees so it wasn't all that cold.

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and
the background was digitally blurred to make it look like I'm going really fast.

I was out after I got home from my midnight work shift. Put on the ususal warm gear and hit the road for a few hours again. There were a few riders out but we certainly were in the minority. I can not see letting this weather go to waste when the roads are still dry. I believe the cold air is about to hit us for a few days soon but once it passes through I will be back out again.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

^ Me too, I won't waste a sunny day just because it's a cold sunny day. Snow is another story but alas, we don't have to worry about that just yet. Soon enough - but not yet...

We have had unusually warm weather here for the past 3 weeks, and I have seen one or two riders out almost every day. The cold and a little snow came down today, and is forcast to stay for a while, so the riding seems to be over for the forseeable future.

Very nice, despite the overcast. So did you ride?

Awww, yeah I guess there is a definitive end-of-season up there huh? How does a return ride look for you next season?

Well I sure plan on riding again next season!
Probably need to spend a few days slow riding in some parking lot practice when I start though.
I know I need to get more exercise than I am getting at work in order to rebuild the strength in my arms and legs.
