I finally got back out on bike today after too long a lay off due to ice and health reasons. And it never felt better.
yes it was freezing cold and hard going with the temperature at 3C and the wind chill making it feel like -1. My toes felt it worse and I am sure that if I would have stayed out any longer they would have dropped off.
And it was pretty blustery with winds gusting at 30 mph. Hard going riding into but, on the positive side, it was great when it was blowing from behind.
And my sit bones were suffering by the time I got home, but they will soon toughen up again.
All in all, it was a great ride and it is so good to be back in the saddle.
