Spring Fever

I've been trying to average an hour of riding a day, and last week was one of the banner weeks for the year so far -- most days were dry enough for a good road ride of at least an hour.

Last night was the capper -- sunny, 65 degrees, no wind... The kind of day that begs for a long ride. But I didn't have all day. Actually, I had just a little over an hour. I made full use of it.

I took a route I haven't done in a long time, with a couple nice uphills, some short descents, and some nice flats for motoring along. Drafting with traffic is fun too.

This was the first ride all year I've been able to do in short sleeves, shorts and fingerless gloves -- no arm warmers, no knee warmers, shoe covers, or even wind vest. Glorious. I kind of felt a little naked.

Spring is here. And today it's raining again, with pretty much nothing but rain in the foreseeable weather future.

But the rain is warmer.
