    The local "Ride the Temperature" New Years Day ride starts in 1.5 hours

    Currently 18 degrees (Fahrenheit)with wind chill of 10.

    I am choosing the Celsius option and staying home.

    Dang you all had a heatwave.

    It is -10F according to my roof weather station right now...was -16F at 8AM local. Rollers it is today. With hand-egg all day, there's something to at least stare at.

    My first ride in 2018: Fail!

    Too much bubbly last night, so it's an hour on the elliptical while staring at mindless YouTube vids, courtesy of Roku.

    I'm hoping my resolution of not swearing in traffic will last at least a week

    -16 this morning. The 10-day forecast doesnít include a temperature above 30. Winter took a while getting here, but itís making up for lost time.

    Yup, last January I rode 250 miles, Feb 300 miles. Not shaping up like that so far. My usual New Years Day ride is the local 12 mile climb where temps at the top tend to be 10-15 degrees colder than the bottom. I actually considered that a monumentally stupid attempt at this today might be a fitting way to start the year, but decided I actually like having all my fingers and toes.

    Same here. I think they had something like 10 riders instead of the usual 40. I did at least get on zwift. When it warms up I'll be up for a slow ride.... take it easy..

    Interesting, I went for a 10 mile fat bike ride, and it was 10 degrees Farenheit.
    Perfect!
