Our daughter is home from college and has a job while on break...good worker by the way. So seeing how it was -17°F this morning, I was up 5 AM making sure the vehicles would start. It was her car that didn't start but I partially blame myself for that. We didn't plug it in. When I tried to start it I don't think I did that right either. But I had it running before she had to leave for work. The bicycle had no problem starting though. For my families benefit I rode the back trails so people didn't see me. hehehe
It was a choice of either riding the dreaded indoor trainer or brave the elements. I chose the elements. That trainer is the most motivational tool there is for getting me outside to ride. The Fat-bike riding conditions in our area are nothing short of great.
It was at 10 below 0 on the Fahrenheit scale (-23C) when I left for the ride at 10:45 but only 8 below when I rolled back in to the house at 11:40. It was warming up. Tomorrow will be colder. I added a sweater and goggles to my regular cold riding gear. I was not one bit cold, but I messed up when I stopped to take the last picture. I just slid my goggles down and snapped the picture, but when I slid them down I was breathing on them. That created ice which made it difficult to remove and ride, so I cut the ride to just less than an hour.
When I got home I headed to the basement to stock the wood stove and load this drivel up. I think my job for the next couple of days will be similar to REO "Keep the Fire Burnin".
Lets get outdoors and have some fun!!
