Nothing beats that first spring ride without leg warmers. Well, maybe the second spring ride without leg warmers…
When we rolled out Thursday afternoon I still needed a long-sleeve jersey, but it was a thin one and it was just warm enough I could leave the leg warmers in the dresser. Even with a decently gnarly wind, Chuck and I managed better than a 19-mph average.
It would have been nice to get out yesterday but I had to bowl and I’m a bit of a stickler with commitments. Unfortunately, that nice weather we had is all done for a minute. Today we’re back to rain and snow. Tomorrow, we’ll be lucky if the mercury tops freezing.
This isn’t entirely bad news, of course. I’ve got some maintenance to perform on both of my bikes and my wife’s. I’ll manage to keep busy between naps – it’s going to be one of those days.
