First Winter Ride of the Season

by on December 22, 2010

This Ride: 23.4 miles
Kona Distance: 5,451.9 miles
Month to date: 410.9 miles
2010 Total: 5,943.4 miles (56.6 to go for 6,000)

This was a rare afternoon ride. I was unable to ride with the SPP 5:45 group this morning due to an early appointment, but had hoped to be able to ride this afternoon. All the cards lined up properly, and rather than a nap, I jumped on the bike for a planned 20 miler. It was warmish (42 F) and breezy. I had some gear adjustments to make early on and my chain started complaining about a quarter of the way into the ride, but it was a nice ride.

I can’t take the remaining days of December for granted.  Snow is possible this weekend, and some forecast models indicate it could dump quite a bit on us.  If I don’t want to finish my 6000 miles on the trainer, it makes sense to get as many as I can in before the weekend.  It looks like a 2-3 good rides will do it.
