I am very happy with this years riding and stats.
I look forward to what the new decade brings.
Perhaps a new bike?
KEEP RIDING !!!!
I woke up this morning and found light snow falling with about 1 inch on the ground. I thought what a great way to end an excellent cycling year. Unfortunately, the weather began to change and the snow converted to sleet. I managed to get in 10 safe miles.
Wishing all of you a HAPPY NEW YEAR,

It snowed 15 inches and it's not even winter. My wife and I shoveled out the driveway in order to get the cars and my bike out. I have been having cabin fever and decided to take the trike out for a quick winter spin around the block. Slipping and sliding on the snow/ice patches can only be accomplished on a trike. I took some raw video to help depict the awesome experience. I hope you can appreciate my excitement.

I did my 1st real 09 winter ride. Boy was it cold. Temps in the low 30's, overcast and thankfully little wind. Leftover snow still on the ground. I had been couped up in the house the past 2 days unable to ride. It had gotten to me, so today I dressed up like a black abominable snow man and off I went. I decided to play it by ear and see how I felt. It was raw outside so a modest 24.5 miles was done. As chilly as it was I did see 3 other cyclists. The one great thing about winter triking is you don't have to worry about slipping or skidding on ice patches.
Ironically, as I write this, a package arrived of No Show Darn Tough socks I ordered for the summer.

It's been a great cycling year for me. I reached my goal of 3K miles in less than a year. I also turned 10,000 miles on my very Sweetened ICE T. This is my 3 rd trike and by far the best. I have added all my creature comforts and tweaked the bike to my perfect specifications, so it fits me like a glove. It has been such a joy to ride that it has become my only ride. It is a keeper. The folks at ICE have not only done their homework, but continued their great customer support. I know 10 K is just the beginning and look forward to many more miles.
