are fading away. Today was beautiful and full of sunshine, just what we've all been waiting for. I rode today and the first half of the ride was perfect, I was riding Southeast and then totally South for about half of my ride, it was great, I was climbing nice and smooth and then I turned West and it got windy but not really that bad UNTIL I turned North with almost 20 miles to go to get home. It wasn't only windy but seemingly Arctic frigid cold and windy, I literally felt like I got brain freeze and it scared me for a minute until I kind of figured out what it was. I was breathing through my nose and and the cold air must have caused that, at least I hope that's what it was! Hey, at least it was a ride-able day to get some good miles in, even though I was so cold though on the return trip home I kept the speed down so I would stay a little warmer but that didn't seem to help much, and I was definitely dressed for the temperature. The 8 day forecast is looking very good with some warmer temperatures and the weekend is looking good for the group ride this Sunday. Yes, spring is right around the corner.
