    Default Have you had your monthly ride yet.

    We had a 50 degree day yesterday so I made sure to get one in. Just a short 20 mile around town but it counts...

    -21 (Yes, minus) (F) in central Mass this morning. Even colder I hear in VT and NH. Even Mr. Gerbing's gear won't help right now!

    We rode to sunny California where it rained 4 out of the 5 days we were there. Our good gear kept us dry and I used my heated jacket to keep me toasty. Didnít have to try out the heat on my new Russell Day-Long saddle though. 1,555 miles round trip. Next up is Tombstone which will be 1,100 miles round trip.

    Loving winter, how about you??

Keeps me in practice manual clutch & all functions Had to learn for riding in first place.

    Default FIRST RIDE OF JANUARY

    I took my first ride of the new year this afternoon. It was a balmy 40 degrees. I rode 59 miles in about an hour and 20 minutes around the area. Even though I live in the south it has been brutally cold for this time of year. We should be in the 50's later in the week before the next arctic blast.

    We took a 250 mile ryde on Saturday through the foothills and into and out of the Napa Valley! Some absolutely awesome roads and the weather was perfect. Ranged from 50 at the start to 62 by the end of the day. It was just after a nice rain on Friday an drew the air was crisp, clear and fresh! Sorry about all of the COLD the rest of the country is dealing with, but had to get out and enjoy!
