Pair of Weekend Rides

Short ride on Saturday due to sub-freezing temperatures (23F). Met up with Mike for 25 miles out to the LIE and back. Not much wind so, except for fingers and toes, I stayed pretty warm for the ride. Water bottle started to freeze but there was just enough sun on the way back so it didn't freeze solid.

Today (Sunday) was supposed to be warmer, and it was. But windy conditions and overcast skies still made it feel cold. Temperature was above freezing but never made it out of the 30's for the duration of the ride. We did the full 40-mile Brands route but Mike had a mechanical at mile 25 which forced him to do the remaining 15 miles in his 2nd lowest gear. Talk about spinning! We limped back to Brands a later than we had originally intended but were both glad to get the miles.
