The weather, after several days of clouds, wind, rain, and cold, was excellent. Sunny skies, temperatures in the high 40's, and a light breeze. It would have been good to work on fender installation, but this day was made for ridin'.
Even on the relatively low traffic county roads, I was a little surprised how empty they were. Maybe everyone was either shopping...or watching football. Whatever the cause, it makes for a delightful 2-hour excursion for a man and his bicycle.
