VelociPete appropriately called me out yesterday for whining about "inclement" weather when it was 40 degrees in Louisville, but only 14 or something in the Twin Cities. Point taken. a cold rain, though, is pretty unpleasant to ride through.
this a.m. brought more "unpleasant" weather, in the form of some slightly frozen roads here in Luavull. There was a little snow- no biggie- and i was ready to ride. i subsequently found out that underneath that was a nice, thin layer of ice, and I'm not riding on ice. I like reading the discussions about all the folks up north with studded Nokian tires, but I could only use those something like 2 days a year. So no commute this a.m.
this p.m. i was going to hit the road but i instead got on the rollers for a second time this season, this time continuing '03 LBL. I promised myself last time on the rollers to extend my time, which i did by 10 minutes. i remember further that, when you tire on rollers, you can more easily fall off. I wish I could set up both the rollers and the Turbo trainer downstairs, but alas, Legos take precedence.
i did my time though and will have better commuting opportunities tomorrow.
