I rode for about an hour last night on some deserted roads near the house. Not one car did I see in that hour. Oh, I take that back...I did not see any that were driving but I did see three vehicles parked at the local bar I rode by, but two belonged to the owners. I had changed the rear cog on the fixed gear from a 16 to 17 tooth. It makes a noticeable difference and I liked the change for the road conditions last night. The back roads around here are now covered with a layer of ice with a layer of sugar snow on top of that in some places. In all likely hood, they will stay that way until spring. Good for studded tire riding.
I was out an hour and it was a great ride at +12F or about -11C which comes out to near 262 Kelvin. About global warming, Jimmy Kimmel once said we can lower the temperature dramatically just by switching from Fahrenheit to Celsius...So there ! !
