Rode the GS to work this early morning. saw a low of 24 (in the valleys) and high of 35 (on the hills). Had to keep a keen eye out for black ice.   EEK!

It was still nice to be back on a bike commuting and this afternoon will be in the 60's.   Thumbsup

Me and Steve went for a nice 100+ mile ride today. Real nice weather EXCEPT for the lousy wind that came up.            Mad2

I haven't ridden in over a month. Probably the longest without riding in the last 15 years.

-13 here last week, 74 today.

I would call that a temperature swing for sure!

I think New Mexico Winter has decided to leave. It's been cool in the mornings but warms up into the 60s and has gotten into the 70s in the last several days. Supposed to get to 80s soon!!
This morning while in the patio enjoying a fire with a big jug of coffee the balloons were out again. The picture here as they were directly overhead!

This morning I was lamenting the Spring ritual of bundle up for a cold 30 degree ride to work in the morning, then have to carry all the cold weather base layer gear back home when it's warmed up near 80, wishing I was wearing a mesh jacket.

Yep, I chose not to ride today for that reason. I rode to work Mon-Wed though.
