A Short Ride!

Holy Smokes!!!  What is THAT??  The Sun??

Better take advantage, even though its cold and windy — they say a winter storm is coming

Short ride south to the North Fork

Diamond Back just west of the North Fork on 4000N

There goes Skinny Schwinny headed back to town — the greenish tinge is winter wheat in the field

At a whopping 3 miles, the longest ride I’ve been on for a while

Very much enjoy all the entries you all have provided -- great to see the everyday cycling venues. Being in eastern Illinois, scenery certainly isn't our forte, but oh well, the roads are normally quiet. Look forward to more and more entries from all of you, I do have a few over on BL -- in Bill's Day Rides, and one journal.

      The jury is still out on the gloves — I thought they would or should actually feel warm, and they do at first, but they don’t continue to feel the warmth, but fingers don’t get numb either, so idk.

      Never thought I would agree with Justin Beiber on anything — but his comment about “unrealistic expectations” may apply here. 🙂

    Not only sun, but a beautiful blue cloudless sky!
    Three miles is three miles more than you have been able to do lately, so I am sure you are happy for it.
    I feel similarly about my costly heated gloves and that is why I added pogies which I can highly recommend. I think they could work for you in that more than could whether you have to ride in. You should try ?.

    Any ride is better than no ride. And that blue sky and no snow looks very inviting, no matter what the temp.
