Played poker until 3am. It was -1°F with winds whipping around. It felt like acid hitting any exposed skin. I find it hard to believe that I used to work outside in this kind of weather.
Getting back to cycling.
There is a local group of cyclists that I follow called The Long Distance Cyclists of Cleveland. These guys put on serious miles and my goal eventually is to be worthy of their group. These guy ride all the time in horrible weather and their motto is: “No Whining, No Cheating, No Drugs, No Motorized Vehicles, and No Abusing the Organizer”
I was sure they would be out in force this weekend. Here is what they posted on their blog today:
The road conditions don’t looks so good this morning. There was also a lot of blowing snow yesterday. With the temperatures as low as they are, I’m not sure if the roads will be clear by Saturday morning. I noticed that some intersections are really messy. In the interest of safety I think the ride should be cancelled. What are your thoughts?
Ha. Looking grim for tomorrow. Worst case scenario, I go to the group, we have some chili and I meet some nice people. We’ll see.
Now, here is a random picture of a kitten for no particular reason.
