The end of the year is quickly approaching and I find myself 227 miles short of my goal for the year. It's going to be close, but I think I can pull it off if the weather cooperates.


I had plans to do the 50 mile loop of this ride but bailed on it and did the 30 miler instead. It was too cold out there to be on the bike more that 3 or 4 hours. It was 24 degree's when I started at 9:30 and 35 degree's when I finished at 12:30. This ride has some great views but there's also a lot of steep hills to climb, I've done the 50 mile loop before but was surprised to see that the 30 had quite a bit of hills too. High street was a killer that just kept going up. My top speed on one of the down hills was 35mph, I wonder what the wind chill temp was on that?
