Happy Day After Thanksgiving

Temperature at departure = 19° F (-7° C)

It was a great Thanksgiving. We had family in and enjoyed a marvelous meal and fellowship. Hope you had a nice one too.

A bit of a change in temperature since Tuesday's 62°... May I say once again that I LOVE riding in this weather! If you've thought about it but resisted because of cold temperatures -- layer up and enjoy.

Some of the benefits:

  • Fewer people on the bike/hike trail.
  • Rosy facial glow.
  • Great conversation starter.
  • I'm convinced motorists are more apt to see you and be cautious around you because they'll be convinced you are an idiot.

And for Fritz who may miss the cold now that he's snug in Silicon Valley:

Helping face the cold
Winter's blasts won't stop me now
Balaclava mine.

Warm? Are you kidding? It must be below 60° here in California now. Unbelievable! I'm surprised the palm trees and orchids haven't all turned black with frost!
