New Years ride

Postby Fenlason » Thu Jan 01, 2015 8:09 am

We did our New Years ride last night. We like to head out in one year.. and not come back until the next. We have done it a few years now, although we missed last year. My knees were pretty bad, and I was a little depressed about that.. so we didn't head out. We later both mentioned we missed doing it.

It is not a huge ride.. but also not just a 5 minute thing, We do a real ride. We had temps at about 9 degrees.. and windier than I had thought [and hoped] We had a gorgeous moon to start with, but the wind did bring in some cloud cover. We ended up using out Moonlanders. It was not a fast ride by any means… but we were out for an hour and had an awesome time. :D

Happy New Year everyone. :P

Sounds fun. We do a winter solstice celebration ride every year. My wife and I briefly considered riding our bikes to a new years party last night, but icy streets and 10 degree temps deterred us. Happy new year anyway.

:thumbsup: Happy New Year.

We would generally have had icy roads.. but we had record warm and rain for Christmas… so the roads are relatively clear. Although we do have a couple of studded tired bikes as options. We are fairly rural.. so not a lot of traffic… and last night the few cars we met gave us a WIDE berth. :roll: 8)
