For the last 10 years I have been riding my age for my birthday. Being born in January and living in New Jersey does not make this an easy task. Getting up in numbers doesn't help either. I always try to start the year off with a ride. This New Year's Day was picture perfect with temps into the 50's. My birthday is next week and not knowing what weather lies ahead I decided today would be the ride. I passed my cyclists getting in their first ride of the year. My legs were not used to this many miles and they let me know. I manged to persevere and finished the ride. I feel blessed and hope to continue this tradition.
