The Official First Day of Winter?

by on December 22, 2011

This Ride: 21.4 miles
Month: 374.5 miles
2011: 7,444 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 13563.7 miles

The winter solstice arrived with gusto this morning, and our first day of winter ride couldn’t have been nicer.  We had a dozen riders out in falling temperatures starting at about 50 and ending around 45.  Some of the riders were first-timers for the 5:45 ride, and at the end of the ride, at least one of them commented that this was the fastest ever ridden.

I’m gradually solving a shift alignment problem, so today was better than yesterday.  Maybe later today I can get the bike up on the new Park maintenance stand and fine tune the adjustments.  I want it working perfectly for Monday’s 200k.

Even though the hours of daylight gets longer now, sunrise still is later until January 6th.
