Warming Trend Peaked This Morning

by on December 16, 2011

Month: 288.5 miles

Total since 1/1/2010: 13477.6 miles

It required a double take and independent verification this morning to determine the temperature.  At 5:00 am it was 58° F!  I almost left the house dressed for 58 and I’m glad I didn’t.  I noticed that the temps were supposed to fall fast, reaching about 45 by 8:00 and since I planned a little longer ride this morning, I dressed for 45.  I’m glad I did.  More than half my ride was in those lower temperatures.  What a week!  Monday started with 23 and by Friday it was 58.  I went through quite a variety of clothing choices.

We had 12 riders out this morning, with 6 going on to breakfast at the Hard Bean in Annapolis.  It was a breezy morning, but lots of good conversation and four of us were on fixies.  Much of our conversation was on tomorrow evening’s SPP winter party at Clint’s house.  We are expecting about 60 people so it should be a good time.

The solo trip around the airport felt pretty good.  I shot some video.  I’ll have to see if it turned out.  Part way around the airport I heard three beeps (not good) and turned the camera off.  I had hoped to record the whole airport loop and play it back at double speed.  There was very little traffic on the trail around the airport.  I think I saw only about 3 riders the entire loop.

The task list for today is pretty long.  I think I’d better get to it.
