Frozen Birdbath

by on November 26, 2012

Although my trusty outdoor thermometer read a balmy 34° F as I pushed out the door for the morning ride, the water in my birdbath mounted on my deck was frozen solid.  Maybe my bike thermometer which read 26° is more accurate than I thought.

It was a chilly ride, but being dressed properly is the key, and I was dressed properly for this morning’s rather leisurely ride.  At the bridge, it looked like it would be just Ravi and I, but soon Chet, Brian, and Cliff joined us and we had a great time.

Chet was showing off his new bike lights.  Part of his bike is wrapped with a blue tubular light.  On his rear wheel, he has a light that displays his speed on the spokes.  It was pretty cool and the bright red light would make the bike much easier to see when approached from the side.  He sure had a lot of bling going on with that fixie!

It won’t be long now before the ride ends in the dark.  We are less than a month away from the solstice and the ride now ends before sunrise.  The sky was pretty this morning with the clouds tinged with a dark pink as I finished up at home.

I promptly put my new glove dryers to work.  For just a few dollars, I constructed glove dryers from pvc components and wire from a clothes hanger.  It had the insides of my gloves dry in no time.

This Ride: 21.8 miles
Month: 460 miles
2012: 5,435.3 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 19,289 miles
