 Out of the Icebox
After a couple of weeks snow and single digit temperatures and a couple days of heavy rain finally got out for a ride. Had planned on riding the road bike as just had power meters installed on my crankset and wanted to try them out. Unfortunately, although the rain had stopped there was still one-hundred percent humidity. The streets were still wet with puddles of salt water and large amounts of grit. Opted for the mountain bike instead. Really don't know the difference between fog and low-lying clouds. Visibility at ground level was limited by my failing eyesight but nothing was visible above fifty feet. Rode up Main St and did a short section of trail then did a loop around Havana Glen Park and headed home. I was really disappointed I didn't take the road bike out but should have a chance tomorrow if it goes into the fifties as predicted. Really looking forward to heading out of town on the open road. Winter is returning on Saturday so tomorrow will be the last sensible day for a while.
