I've got to admit there are days when it's pretty hard to motivate myself to get out there. Today was one of those days. Lots of cold to deal with. I know better though. I'm always glad I rode when I get home, and I couldn't live with myself if I stayed in.
Had to concentrate on the road. A little snow had fallen and covered everything up, including the ice patches...no issues, but I really had to pay attention to the surface I was crossing.
Ice crystals on the balaclava say one thing - it's cold out. There were two of them...two whole degrees today. Really glad I rode. Post ride shower and hot chocolate were extra good today.
