There is not a cloud in the sky today, so it’s a good thing I met my January challenge early in the month. So really, this post is just designed to keep you informed as to how I’m doing with my NewYear’s resolution to ride my bike EVERY SINGLE DAY THIS YEAR.
Recently I read something in the news that said less than 20% of New Years resolutions last beyond two weeks. I can now report that I’m normal. At least, I’m normal in that I’m a failure. I did not ride on January 5th and 6th because The Feeshko and I were out of town. And I did not ride on the 8th because I had a tooth ground down for a dental crown and I just didn’t feel like riding with a numb mouth afterwards. The good news is that I’ll keep trying to ride every day from now on.
I can say we’ve had some decent weather by Minnesota standards. Yesterday we had our first day that got below zero. That is the latest date on record for our first below-zero day. Today we had our second below-zero day. The lack of cloud cover to hold in the heat is a big reason for that.
I have no desire to share 362 bike rides with you this year, but I will check in with a few updates here and there. This is one of them. It had gotten up to 3-degrees by this time (-16 for you Celsius fans) with a windchill factor of -13 (F). That won’t stop me.
