I’ll admit it, I’m a fair weather rider

Yuigloop, that’s right I’m not fond of venturing out in the colder temps. That’s not to say I haven’t done it and I certainly have the gear for it but I don’t find it particularly pleasurable riding in sub freezing temps. It’s much easier riding from summer to fall and then into the winter when the temps are dropping gradually. It’s not very easy when you have 70+F weather on the weekend and then wake up to a 28F temp complete with snow and ice the following Wednesday. Needless to say I didn’t venture out yesterday. Instead I did a little bike maintenance, like putting on some clear stickers from Lizard Skins to prevent the paint from cable rub. I also spent a bit of money on some new bibs and jersey from Performance Bike, specifically their Ultra SL Bib Shorts and Ultra Short Sleeve Jersey. I plan on doing a review on them so stay tuned and it looks like they already shipped so I might have them for the weekend. Woo hoo! I also couldn’t pass up their one day 20% off Garneau sale so I should be looking stylish this summer!

Not sure if I’ll get a ride in today or not as it hasn’t even hit 50F here and it’s still windy. I really don’t want to have to dig out the cold weather gear as I put it away (along with my ice scraper which made cleaning the car window interesting) I may just wimp out as much as I want to ride and hit it hard his weekend!

Rain, rain, go away…

Rubber DuckyWell there will be no riding today as it is raining cats and dogs outside. It might be a good night for me to put the 32c tires back on the Tricross… the roads took a beating this winter and the 25’s I have on it now aren’t as forgiving comfort-wise. Hopefully I’ll be back on the road tomorrow and the the snow they are predicting overnight doesn’t turn out to be anything. It’s April 15th, we shouldn’t have to worry about snow now.
