monday mtb ride at tranquility - 11.21

Rode to church yesterday morning in 20 degree temps to stay current with weather and test how many layers were needed. Half hour ride with tailwind and sun, 3 layers - had to slow down and unzip wind shell because was overheating core, though my 2 layer gloves still had my fingers getting cold.

Tonight's ride should be in 30's but without sun, so probably about the same - warm base layer and external garment. Ride to stay warm but slow down if sweating.

Roll from kiosk at 124th and Fort about 6:05. Ride a lap or so. If we're cold, can always cut ride short.

We need to keep riding to have the body and mind adapt to weather, otherwise it's 4-5 months of indoor stuff.

Let's enjoy the ride!

Another great night ride, temps mid 30's without wind. Best sub 40 ride I've had for staying comfortable temperature for hands and feet. Liner glove and PI Amfib; wool socks and Shimano winter boot; for above freezing!

Good group of guys and dog Cody. Thanks for recovery drinks Dave, Paul, Greg, and for pizza, Cody.
