uh, the report is that I got to ride yesterday, finally.  1st ride of 2018. 141.3 miles.  After days of single digit-teen-below freezeing  temps, it finally warmed up enough to get in a decent ride.  Where and when does not matter .... although it was a good over the mountain roads-lunch ride .... me and my Burgman buddy, Charles. Woo Hoo, nice winter, mid 50's temp. ride:-)  Lots of ice on ponds and creeks, roads still a little damp, ZERO sunshine,  but how wonderful it was!

We had a day and a half of near 60 degree weather up here in Massachusetts Friday and up to midday Saturday.  I was tempted to bring the bike out for a quick ride but decided against it due to lots of salt on the road and quickly dropping temps on Saturday.

How often do you ride in winter in Tennessee?  Is it an all year thing usually?

Well,  I now got to ride 3x in '18. Woo hoo.  It's been the coldest January we've had here in a while.  Just had a few days of snow, ice, bitter cold. But thankfully I've gotten in a couple brief rides.
Here's a pic of one road b4 the snow last week.



Actually 65* today .... but a cold and cough kept me on the couch watching football.:-(

But ... Spring's a Coming:-)
