Mid-Week Rides

I'm coping with temps in the 40's for now. I keep telling myself that in a month or two I'll be wishing for 40's!

Yesterday was quite raw with low, gray clouds hiding the sun. It even sprinkled and showered on me a little, but the wind was blowing so hard, I was air dried before the rain could dampen my clothes! I was glad I'd ridden, but was happy to be home at the end of 20 miles.

Today was much nicer with the sun shining. I can take the cold and wind so much better if I can feel that sun on me! A chance encounter with a friend to ride with also kept my spirits high. I was feeling good when I got home at the end of 40 miles.

I saw a little critter carrying lunch home at one point on today's ride. I had to shoot into the sun, so you'll have to look closely to see the little mink with some kind of mouse. It was cute as it loped along beside me. I couldn't believe it hung around while I stopped and got the camera out, but it paused to look at me a couple of times.

I have plans to meet a friend for tomorrow's ride. Then, it's the weekend and Jeff and I will meet up with the same friend on Saturday. The forecast for Sunday and into next week is looking pretty wet, so there may be a rest day coming up!

Cold, gray days - good 'cross weather!
