A 46° afternoon with brilliant sunshine and only light winds on January 2? I’ll take that! It’s always a great feeling to chalk up the first miles of a new season. I wasn’t too ambitious today—there’s still snow, ice, and wet roads out there—and I’m not going to be too ambitious all winter. Today’s ride was slow going at 1 hour, 25 minutes, but it was way more fun than spinning in place down in the home gym.
