Despite the Best Efforts of Some

by on December 6, 2012

I didn’t ride this morning.  It was a late night and my fatigue at 4:45 was pretty overwhelming.  I got up and considered it for a little while, then I simply went back to bed for an hour and a half.  It was a good decision.

That’s not to say it was easy.  Dan put out an email yesterday.

Gentlemen and Janet:

Seriously, there will be no more excuses. Get your butts out of bed and be at the RB, or meet us as we roll past the RS, but be there! Harden up boys, it is just going to get colder from here and you need to be out, if not for your self, do it for the rest of us knuckle heads who managed to get up on time and who would appreciate your company. See you in the morning:

Sorry to disappoint.

Yesterday’s ride was challenging.  I rode the Kona since it was all ready to go.  It was 60 at the start and I dressed for 60.  By the time I got to the Rusty Bridge, it was sprinkling.  By the end of the ride we had a steady light rain, roads were slick, and temperatures had dropped.  While it was only a 5° drop in temps (combined with rain) it was pretty cold and I cut the ride short to head for home.  I nearly cut the ride even shorter as I slid for about 20 feet trying to stop before hitting Ritchie Highway.  I timed the light wrong.

This Ride: 18.3 miles
Month: 147.3 miles
2012: 5,650.9 miles
Total since 1/1/2010: 19,504.5 miles
