Good thing he says he's not doing Milan-San Remo this year!
Fun 2.5 hours in the dark last night. It was a weird ride for a couple of reasons.
I felt pretty poorly for most of the day yesterday. Not sick, but just fatigued. Likely because my oddball dietary issues prevented me from partaking in the company Christmas dinner. I had a single chicken breast before leaving HQ...at 5pm.
As the day progressed, I felt better. Took a catnap. Better. Ate a little more than usual. Better.
Once on the bike, everything was A-OK.
The ride itself was fun. Just rolled around, had some laughs, got some miles.
The truly odd thing was the huge fluctuations in temperature depending on where we were in town. I don't mean just a couple of degrees...only noticeable on a thermometer, but huge variations. It was probably 10+ degrees warmer on Main St. than it was near The Strom. The two are MAYBE a mile from one another....
Then coming home through the 'Wood, it was freezing cold.
Fortunately, the Mad Alchemy kept me toasty-ish.
No matter. 2.5 hours beats riding the trainer. All day...every day...
If anyone is looking for a ride, 0900 tomorrow @ Rosewood School. 55-ish miles out thru The Swamp and Lower Richland. Come on out. Who knows...you may enjoy it.
Seeing as Christmas is 5 days away, I should probably wrap some gifts...
Hope to see some folks in the morning....
