Each day I find myself going thru the same emotions and anxiety … waiting for the time to pass so that I can go out for my daily ride on my tadpole trike. Like a horse chomping on its bit and rearing up, I want to get going. But I have to wait. It is still dark outside and still too cold. I need to wait until it is daylight and the temperature starts to warm up a bit. Of course, I am talking about winter time as in summer time just the opposite is true. In hot weather I try to leave early … at first light oftentimes … so I can get out and get my ride in before it gets uncomfortably hot. It is mid March as I compose this which means that it is still getting rather cool overnight and the coldest part of the day is around 7 and 8 AM. So “here I sit all broken hearted, chompin’ at the bit, I can’t get started”. Hey, that actually rhymes. Hopefully it won’t be long before warmer weather arrives and all this changes.

By the way, I tried my best to get my trike to rear up like Silver so I could show a picture of my trike above instead of a horse, but my steady steed refused to cooperate.

Yep, I am rearing to go (at least in my mind). How about you? I want to get out there and …


FREE GIFT awaits you!

Well, it is light enough and warm enough so I am OUT OF HERE!

  1. Yep, we are with you, it’s been a lot tougher to get in a ride this winter here in Southern CO. as we’ve gotten a LOT more “snow and cold” than the last 3 winters combined. Feb. was miserable, March (which is suppose to by our snowiest month of the year!) has actually been better, ride wise! We got in a ride yesterday and it was 60 F+ and sunny, YEA!! It’s cooling down today, can’t ride gota take the wife’s trike in for new front wheels and Friday it’s COLD and a very good chance of up to 3 inches of wet, heavy snow, IF we don’t get more than that it’s possible we could ride on Sunday, it’s according to wither the “ground” is warm enough to melt the new snow, hope so! LOL, we always say we can hear the trikes kick’in the barn door when cabin fever starts to set in! 😉 As the song (Jimmy Buffet), I shot six holes in my freezer, I think I’ve got cabin fever, somebody sound the alarm! 🙂
