2018’s Cycling Season (perhaps I should clarify, outdoor cycling season) is just around the corner. The weather report is finally coming around. After more than a foot of snow last weekend we hit 43° (9C) yesterday and it’s raining today with a high expected in the same range. It should be warm enough to melt most of the snow and the rain will wash off the roads. We’re looking at temps above freezing for the weekend. Saturday will be a little tricky, but Sunday looks fantastic.
So with that, I’ll probably head out once it has a chance to warm up on Saturday (it’s going to be a minute, low temp for the morning is shown at about 10° (-12C), and that’s just a bit too cold for my blood. It’s supposed to warm up to a little better than freezing though, so we’ll see how it goes.
One thing is for certain, my friends and I are ready to get outside. We’ve had enough of being cooped up. The trainer’s good for maintaining fitness when it’s nasty outside but it sure does get old by the end of the winter – especially as rough as this one was.
