 Cold Damp Climbing
Had another week of poor weather. Sat looking out the window and watching it snow yesterday, so decided to take a short ride despite the threatening showers. Wind was still blowing from the north but felt almost calm since it wasn't blowing in the teens or twenties. Headed up Dug Road on the Bronson Hill course. It's pretty much all climb and descents except for the last two miles. My climbing legs must have deserted sometime in the last month, so climbing was measured. Actually felt warm and toasty on the first two mile climb, but once I got over the top the rest of the ride was on the cool damp side. Didn't put much effort into the ride and just tried to ride steady. The Bronson Hill climb is short and steep but spun it without any difficulty or suffering. Last few miles of downhill went well but again it was keep the speed down to stay warm.
Not a bad day on the bike but went slow and fortunately dodged the showers.
