So far it has been another mild winter here in Fort Wayne, Indiana where I live. I am quite thankful for that as it means I have been able to keep riding most days. I am not one for stationary indoor exercise so being able to ride outdoors has been great. We haven’t even had any snowfall worth mentioning … just a few dustings. And most days are dry … no rain either. I haven’t bothered to install my knobby tire on the rear wheel for a few years now as I haven’t needed it. This year the temperature has been above normal on most days. I can handle mid 30s okay, especially when there is sunshine along with it. Yesterday and today were in the low 40s and I was quite comfortable. In fact, I prefer riding in the 40s over riding in the 80s. I can bundle up and stay warm but there isn’t anything I can do to stay comfortable when it gets hot out. We are about half way thru the winter … that is … the normal winter weather months. I remember a few years ago I had a suntan in late February as the weather had been that good that I was able to wear shorts while out riding. Who needs Florida anyway? I know not everybody can say that they are experiencing the same thing I am. Some are definitely experiencing winter … cold and snow. Hopefully you too will be able to get outdoors soon to ride. I know that we all want to …


A FREE GIFT awaits you!
