OK, time to sign up for the 1st Quarter of 2018.

I set up the table with a list of names from the 2017 1st quarter (those who were still posting anyhow).

Feel free to add yourself to the table

This thread was started by Pansy Palmetto. She's left a lasting impression and I know I'll think of her as I pass mile 25 on any given ride. These are her original rules:
1. Your ride must consist of at least 25 miles and be less than 50 miles.
2. This is a "single posting" category. None of that cheating double/triple/quadruple weasel dipping like all those other mileage threads.
3. Just report your mileage and ride time. Perhaps what you were wearing!
4. We start over anew with each new quarter. Pansy don't care about your older rides.
5. Quarter Rides are the mileage you acquire within a calenderic (fictitious word there) 24 hour period as in midnight to midnight. NO 4pm to 4pm the next day nonsense, RD...

Here's the table, anyone can update it:

#1 - 1/6 - 26.5 miles, 1:46 ride time - nice and easy.

Got to break in a new pair of Castelli shorts that Santa brought for me this year. They were sweet.

And absolutely gorgeous weather in Denver area for this time of year. 50's and sunny and no snow or ice on the ground.

Like you Phil, I finally got a quarter. All the weather websites were saying that yesterday was suppose to be a warm up, but it was still only 16¡ and with the wind it felt like 2¡. I don't call that a warm up.

Q1N1 - 1/7/18 = 25.77 miles - at least I'm on the board

The warm-up started for us yesterday. We hit 40. By Thursday, it is supposed to hit the low 60's, and by Saturday, possible snow with a high on Sunday of 25!

We had a warm up yesterday (got up to 37¡), today the forecast calls for freezing rain for most of the day. Yuck!

Q1N3 - 1/11/18 = 25.63 miles

Temps in the 50's melted all of the snow and produced a sloppy mess of a ride yesterday. I rode through meltwater rivulets carrying grit, salt, and crud which got all over me and my bike making me stop at the self serve car wash after the ride.

Today it is back to winter with several fresh inches of snow on the ground with more to come.

5 more days then we're on our way to...animated-palm-tree-image-0006
