Got a good, good long ride in last Sunday and I feel that is all I have to offer. Feb, March and April were a bust here in the midwest. We had the most wacked out weather I have ever seen. So, no complaining here since we have no control over the situation. I rode as much as I could. I fought off little colds, sore throats and body aches related to the cold weather. My knee got aches that I never had before.
I just plain think that I need to warm up a bit. I did find comfort in using the Tiger Balm. I loved wearing my Hincapie merino base layer. I loved wearing my Cashmere sweater and the Windstopper jacket I got from Billabong.
I have 3 bikes ready to go. My prototype is looking ready, my BMC is also ready. My Chili con Cross is in Singlespeed mode in case the weather goes to pot.
I will be taking a lot less this year. Less lights, less gear, smaller and less bags. I will rely more on stores and suffer with less. I have been checking the weather and it has varied all over the place. Rain and 50's, Sunny and 60's. It changes and I keep preparing for it.
I hope it stays nice for a change and that we finally get a break from this.
