 Winter Riding Perspectives
This Winter has been rough trying to get back into biking;
2014 YTD: 131.34 miles
->listed below are previous Winter statistics:
2010 YTD: 1209.89 -my best Winter riding year ever!
By April 2011 both of my knees had been replaced. I was rehabbing but still managed twice what I have ridden this year.
2011 YTD: 258.59
2012 YTD: 528.19
2013 YTD: 333.28
Of course I am older. Perhaps being a bit less resilient than past years is a reflection on the aging process?
Another interesting memory is from March24th2010; www.bikejournal.com/blog.asp?rname=bikerjohn&cdate=3/24/2010

The Sofrider is my heaviest bike but it's a Cruzbike. More aerodynamic, better at utilizing abdominal, pectoral, and bicep muscles. The difference is quantifiable, with a nearly 1 mph faster average on my commute -under near identical conditions as yesterday.
