Yep, frigid and frozen trumps cold

We're not Alaska cold but going from low 90s to low 70s overnight is shock to our systems. We're talking Florida here! Remember it can be 90 in Dec, Jan and Feb.

Nice and windy 40 mile solo ride this morning. Wind gusts were at 20+ mph at 0900 and went up from there. Not to many places along the route where I had a tailwind but I certainly took advantage of every one I got.

Absolutely beautiful morning for a ride today. Very mild temps which stayed in the 60s. A pretty good head and crosswind heading out but got the help on the way back in. Rode about 50 miles today.

Rode with the C2C group for our last new rider training/meet & greet ride before next weekends real deal. Had 10 veteran riders and 0 new riders for the 52 mile ride around Tampa Bay. Started off in breezy conditions and ended up with killer gusts at around the 35 mile mark. I thought riding along the causeway was going to be super windy but it was actually not bad.
