Fall is hitting with a vengeance! Woke up to this temperature:
We actually had to turn the heat on for the first time. The house was at 61 degrees and it just wasn’t warming up, so we turned it on for a bit. Stinky! I hate the first running of the furnace.
I had to let the temps warm up before riding today! I worked until they got into the 50s and then went out for my ride. There are a lot of frustrating things with my job, but one thing that I do love is being able to take advantage of a flexible schedule. Now that cold weather is coming, I am going to have to do rides more in the middle of the day. It is going to be too cold to go early and too dark to go after dinner. I am very lucky that I can shift my hours to accommodate my rides. That’s the only way I will be able to get to 2500 miles, if I get there. It’s all weather dependent from here on out.
I use the little magic gloves that stretch out to go under my biking gloves when it is cold.
I am really hard on my cycling gloves, too. I tend to grip the handlebars pretty hard, especially on hills, and I wear them out.
It was fairly brisk out. 😀 At least it was sunny. Here is my usual picture point.
Everything is still nice and green. There are a few early turners, but that’s about it for color.
Super bright! I look like a ghost 😀
Add another 10 miles to the tally now.
I also did a new nail design. I posted this on facebook, so sorry for those that are seeing it again.
This is my new cheap hobby!
