Musings about fun between my legs

December 23


The sun was shining, though the thermometer read 35 degrees. On the main roads, the snow and ice from two days ago had melted, so I decided to head out for a ride. I definitely wanted to stay away from ice; no desire for injury as I prepare for my upcoming “adventure.” With the cold, it is always a challenge to figure out what to wear: enough to be warm in the early miles of the ride, but not too much to overheat in the middle of the ride. This “clothing dilemma” is a learning experience I need to master before my trip. Though I hope we won’t experience any freezing temperatures during the tour, I am sure there will be days that start cold, then warm up nicely. Or days that start out warm and we encounter a storm that lowers the thermometer quickly. As a good Girl Scout, I will try to “Be Prepared.”

Managed 25 miles on my excursion, which also included 2 stops for some late Christmas shopping. So much more fun and interesting than spinning in the basement in front of the TV.
