41.5 km -2C -10C wind chill. 80% rail trail bright sunshine had the trail to myself. Trying out my new overshoes worked well but feet still cold at end of ride. Not really bothered just so happy to be riding. Cheers

Thats far to ideal. You need to lower your blinds so you suffer a little.

44 miles, & upped the intensity by putting the fan on max speed, direct non oscillating & 1" closer. Living a risky life I tell ya.

Probably about one mile. Just got the tires up and going,and I had other stuff to do so mostly 'make sure it shifts and rolls good.

Still nice.

It was cold and snowy here, so I did an 18.5 mile, 1650ft elevation climb on Zwift. I guess that counts.

I'd say it counts. Glad you were able to get a ride in even though it was virtual.

Only 16 but 1 hour better than none. Just got back in SoCal and by the time I goto home in Temecula and got bike ready to roll, had approx 1 hour of light. Was good to get a start seeing this new area. Also got in over 1K' in that hour
