What to Do, what to DO? One of those rare moments when a trainer ride trumps the great outdoors…

I should have wanted to ride outside after a full day at the office yesterday. Dude, choosing the trainer over even my most mundane route? Never! Until yesterday.

North wind, barely above freezing, clouds on the increase… I just didn’t have it in me to get home and get all duded up just to be cold for the 55 minutes it would take me to ride the 17-1/2 miles. Nope.

Riding in the cold, for me, is one of those things. I don’t do it because I like it, I do it to get fit for warmer rides. After two big days outside, I simply didn’t have to put in a third.

I just didn’t want to be cold again. Dammit.

So I hooked the Trek up to the trainer when I got home and put in my 45 minutes watching The Martian. And it was good.  Well, it was better than being cold for an hour.  Sadly, unless the forecast changes, we don’t have much to look forward to over the next six or seven days.  Cold, a lot of snow, and not much really good for riding.  Ah well, this too shall pass.
