Christmas Funny

On Christmas Eve, I told my son, Spencer, that Santa Clause was going to bring me a new bike for Christmas.  Spencer said “Daddy, Santa doesn’t have a bike for you.”  It was just the way he said it – the tone of the voice, that made it really funny to me.  Sure enough, there was no new bike for me on Christmas morning.  Christmas is a lot more fun when you’re a kid, huh?  http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9

Bar Mitts to the rescue

So, my Mom gave me an early Christmas gift of Bar Mitts after hearing about how cold my hands have been on the commute.  They are mittens that warp around the bike’s handlebars, shielding your hands from the cold.  I used them for the first time on this morning’s commute and, for the first time on my winter commute, I can honestly say that my hands were not freezing.  There was a tiny bit of cold that seemed to be breaking through []

Intense Commute this morning

First, I had to carry my bike through about a 1/2 mile of death mud.  Then, after walking all that distance the ground finally became firm enough to ride my bike.  There was a lull in the bad weather, but, when I got down into the Valley, there was a lot of sleet.  I was pretty cold.  Well, it keeps me awake on the commute at least.  http://www.strava.com/athletes/424498/latest-rides/780c8c7d9d1dab3c1f2aed03da85bc16e22554e9
