I knew it was going to be chilly but, I wasn't planning on getting wet today, so i tried to squeeze in one more ride on my road bike outside.
As I was getting dressed I noticed a few random snowflakes coming down, no biggy actually its better than rain as long as it stays light. Headed out with two goals in mind(gotta have goals) #1 get 180 minutes of good old fashioned SNPD endurance done and #2 check out the new painted up ridge road.
Snow started to get a little heavier and it soon became apparent that the ride was going turn into the first man ride of the 2011 season. No fenders, dry clothing, 1 degree and saturating road surfaces. Cut the ride a bit short but still managed to ride the new shoulders on ridge, before heading back. 1 degree and wet spray is a good way to stay cool. A little chilly by the time i rolled in, actually hitting the garage door cause my hands/brakes weren't working 100%. Its wood no worries.
