19 miles on slow, beefy rental cruisers through NOLA with the fattest seats I've ever seen. My butt and my knees do not thank me, but I still had a great time. Also learned baskets make suitable aero grips on such bikes!

Accomplished my mile goal in this past weekend's Bike Sebring 12/24 Hours bicycling 307.8 miles. Pleased at making the 300 mile mark but disappointed that I stopped riding with 2 hours remaining. After all, it is a 24 hour event and I did not fulfill that requirement. Shortly after finishing I said that it was a one and done event, but when my failure to complete the time frame aspect of the event settled in, I decided to commit myself to next year's race with the new goal of registering as a RAAM Qualified participant. This will force me to bicycle as much as possible in order to complete the required 400 miles of non-drafting riding.

It got up to about 73 degrees here today. Went out for a bit and it was around 28 miles. Beautiful, sunny, low humidity, and modest wind.

Rode out to have lunch with my wife while she was at work-- took the extra scenic route, ended up with 65 miles and ~2,600ft of climbing.

Did my daily 45 mile fitness ride yesterday and today. I mention that because the heavy rain lately has knocked my 'daily' ride to more like 3x a week..

Well here in Southern Quebec the temperature hit a balmy +18C yesterday, under partly cloudy skies. On the 25th of February! So even though I was fighting a man-cold, my wife and I took out our crappy cross bikes for a 40.8 km ride twice around our usual training circuit (700 m vertical). Then in the evening we had thunderstorms (on the 25th of February), and then it snowed overnight and we woke up to a fresh coat of snow, -5C temperatures, and high winds. It was too good to last. I do think it was a record early start to the season for me.

Yesterday after a lot of rain the night before. 16 miles / 1HR / 15mph / 20+ mph wind gusts about knocked me over. 30 degree weather drop today so I wanted to get a ride in before crappy weather on the way. Had to slow down a few times because of the water.
