I'm not an epidemiologist but I did stay at a Holiday Inn express last night.

Good enough.

Are you suggesting Datlas may not be exclaiming his usual "100% fun" today?

I have room for improvements.

They've had some tumbles lately, too.

'Sup Larry complained when I told him he'd have to wear a shirt to join our C&V ride, and now he says he might lose his job over refusing to get vaccinated. I'm tempted to tell him "No shirt, no shot, no service".

We had a good ride. It was below freezing for the first hour but roads 99% dry and small ice patches were easy to avoid. We had 9 riders and kept the pace modest and consistent. I hit 7k miles for the year. :bday:

Ha! Why? Everybody seemed to be riding within themselves and making good decisions.

It’s 57į here but damp and windy. Instead of riding, I’m relaxing for a couple days and embracing the holiday spirit. Merry Christmas!

Radar looks to be showing rain will be over in about a half hour, might have to go out for a short spin in a bit.

Itís going to be a whopping 40 degrees Sunday, hopefully can get some outside miles in.

We are having yet another gorgeous Winter day. Feels like it's around 80A. Zilch for humidity. Blue skies. Light breezes. My efforts today are in the wood shop. I hope to go out for a longish off-road ride tomorrow.
Edit: Tomorrow's weather promises to be exactly the same. As do the entire months of January, February and March. We bask for these few months, and pay dearly for it April through October. It's so perfect that it's sometimes hard to believe it's really happening.

WhyFi 12-24-21 01:14 PM

I think that it was in the low-to-mid 40s for the ride this morning, but the sun has come out and now I'm wishing that I could get out for a little more.

genejockey 12-24-21 01:18 PM

Today it's about 50-si, but breezy. Clouds sliding across the sky, occasionally. Took Rango for the walk he's been dying for the past 3 days when it was raining, and now he's a happy boy. It's pretty breezy, so I'm rethinking riding the Bianchi since it's the most crosswind-susceptible. Maybe the Cannondale, since it's also not steel?

Weíre getting the rain tomorrow. I walked around today. Picked up some PA Dutch egg noodles for the rabbit dish and ate two delicious, freshly made before my eyes cider donuts with cinnamon sugar. #FoodCrack

What IS the point of rocks, anyway?

Hadnt ridden with most of them before. Didnít know what to expect. And that steep hill Iíve never ridden with a group so I hung way far back.
