This week I must admit has been testing...but doable.
Friday morning was the worst.
The weatherman had promised milder temps (if you consider low 20*Fs mild), and lighter winds. They arrived but after my morning ride in. Not only was I riding straight into a stiff wind, wishing I had given my balaclava a try, I forgot my headlamp (again!) and had to turn around adding a mile to my commute.
The ride home @ 21*F seemed balmy in comparison.
It looks like today will be a similar affair, but hopefully I'll beat some of the daylight warmup wind by starting an hour earlier.
Maybe I'm just being stubborn, but it's hard to bring myself to drive if there isn't precipitation.
