Winter Gloves

I finally broke down and bought some winter gloves at CycleGear. My first pair of winter gloves ever. Yes, I think I'm becoming a wuss. However, I look forward to testing out my new gloves. I can't even fathom what it's like to have toasty, hell even almost warm, hands while riding in <50 degrees.

Usually, anything under 60 degrees and my fingers are popsicles. I've been itching to try them out since I bought them at the beginning of the week. Wouldn't you know it, we've had the nicest weather since purchase of said gloves. Today it was mid-50s and I couldn't wait any longer. So I hit the road in my Sedici waterproof women's gloves. Oh my! My hands have never been that toasty. With the advent of winter gloves, I totally don't understand why more people don't ride in the winter.

Blueberry Map

This is what my 44,000 miles of riding looks like. Yes, it's kind of sad. However, it totally puts my knowledge of the area into perspective; no wonder I know this area like the back of my hand. The pink marks are the towns Blueberry and I have invaded blessed with our presence.
Got some riding ahead of me!

Hello 2012!

I can't believe another year is knocking at the door. Well, I guess it's already barged in...In my book, there's no better way to start a new year than with a ride. It's basically a given: if you want a good year, ride on the 1st of January. No ride on the 1st is like asking for bad karma. I have enough bad luck without encouraging bad karma.
I've gotten lazy trying to convince someone to ride with me. I'm not into motivating others to get their lazy rider selves on their bikes. So I'm getting used to riding with me, myself, and I unless someone asks me to ride. Maybe not such a good idea since I tend to be the sensible one when I ride with others. When I'm riding solo, me and myself tend to get I into trouble. Majority vote and all...
