Frosty Mosey Monday

by on November 8, 2010

This Ride: 20.2 miles
Kona Distance: 4,703.9 miles
Month to date: 64.8 miles
2010 Total: 5,190.3 miles
5,254.8 mile goal in 2010: (64 miles to go)

I’m entering new territory here. This morning’s temperature at departure was 35 with a wind chill of 31 (that’s not counting our moving speed). At the end of the ride, the bank display read 30 degrees. I’ve not ridden in conditions this cold since I was in High School.

I’m liking most of the cold weather gear I’m riding with except my feet are still cold.  My feet were good for half of the ride, and I don’t really want to spring for winter riding shoes right now.  I hope to do some reviews of some of these cool weather items in coming weeks.

The ride was slower even though it felt like the same amount of effort.  The 6 riders were able to use the entire trail route, since the erosion control work didn’t start until after our ride.  It was nice seeing the sunrise again.  The switch to Standard Time will give us light again for the end of our ride for a while.
