I rode to work all three work days this week. We’re not having our Thanksgiving feast until early this afternoon, so I wanted to get in a few miles this morning before the cold front and rain arrived. It was 70 degrees when I let the dogs out at 6:00 am. weather.com showed the front getting here at 8:00 and the rain around 10:00, so I figured I’d just leave at 7:00 and ride north until I met the front, then ride back with it.
Of course, the front came in shortly after 6:00, and by the time I opened the garage door to leave at 7:00, it was 48 degrees. The temperature had fallen 22 degrees in one hour. By the time I had ridden 6 miles, a steady light rain was falling. I settled for 26 miles. By the time I got back home, it was 41 degrees. So much for the shorts and short sleeves I wore to ride all week.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
