I had to get out for my customary January 1st ride. It was a balmy 34 degrees, cloudy, with little wind. Streets still wet from yesterdays snow, but easily ridable. It was a short 16 mi loop which has always been a favorite. Very few cars on the road, making the ride more enjoyable. This is the time were I begin to develop my Winter Fur and my Seasonal Affective Disorder intensifies. I look forward to my annual birthday ride and hope the weather cooperates. Winter is tough for cycling and the trike really excels at this time.
