Not quite 7k

Today was my last ride of the year. I needed 26 miles to make 6900 for another record breaking year. Normally this would be easy but today's temps were a blustery 25 degrees. To say it was cold would be an understatement. I dressed as warm as possible but keeping fingers and toes toasty is always a challenge. Even the fairing offered little protection on those fast downhill descents. My muscles never warmed and that cold thick air made riding feel like your pedaling through mud and molasses. My wife thinks I'm crazy riding today. Tomorrow promises even colder weather. Riding on New Year's Day, now that would be crazy!
Happy New Year!!!
