19! that's what the thermometer read this morning when i got up to ride. 19! it hasn't been in the teens at ride time since january 30 when it was 14. 19! is there any temperature at which i will not ride? not sure. i will say that the average temp on a bike ride has never been below 10 since i started keeping track of such things 8 years ago.
the ride itself was alright. the wind was sub-10mph, a great improvement after yesterday. i wasn't overly speedy, but at least i wasn't sub-15mph. i hate that. there weren't any new carcasses lining the road. no one buzzed by too close in their vehicle. my toes and fingers didn't fall off. my nose was nipped, but not bitten. i made it out and back. a good ride in anyone's book.
19! it was 19 degrees out! (34.07 miles @ 15.2mph)
