After a cold winter, it felt absolutely awesome last Tuesday to get out on the bike with a pair of shorts on and let the wind blow past during the uphill ride home from work! I have a pair of Cannondale bike shorts that I bought from Bike Source back when I had my mountain bike, pre-theft, and I felt great on they way home as the wind was able to cool me.
Of course, today isn't going to be that way as it's 32 degrees and raining to beat the band, so it'll be back to the poncho and rain pants. We'll see how the new fenders handle things today - I suppose this is the acid test (or rain test as the case may be). I may have to try out the trick of putting plastic bags over my feet to keep my feet dry (and avoid the problem of rain pouring into my shoes, particularly since I don't have my hiking boots any more). Lord knows that we have enough bags to do that, thanks to the onslaught of stores like Giant Eagle, Target, and even Weiland's Grocery.
And apologies to those who've been reading faithfully the past few weeks - I haven't posted in a week or so due to a death in the family, but now we'll be getting back into it. I have some neat stuff in store for you (I hope) and I hope you stay tuned!
