Title of ride on Strava - “Ride like the wind” only the wind was riding me. Still great to get out and get lots and lots of fresh air :).

@MadisonDan already took the best bridge comment(Bridge Over Troubled Water is a great song). Only thing I got to say is thanks for your support.

Enter Sandman:

Motivation this week was tough. Typical long hours at work for this time of year makes it tough to wake up. Add the cold and dark and it’s an effort to get outta bed. I got home this week on average from work at about 10:30pm, so waking up at 4:30 is a no picnic. I got up yesterday and was all dressed and ready to go but the ground didn’t freeze so that was a fail. I don’t ride my road bike below 32 in the dark( I went down on some ice I didn’t see two seasons back, never again) so I had to wait until today to get some time on dirt.

When I looked at my phone I saw this:
A553FC08-CCD3-4CE1-98C6-D9418567E062.png


So that was like a kick in the groin. I bundled up for a short ride at 6MR. Conditions were concrete frozen solid which was great. All the trails in the field sections were rutted to hell but the woods were fine. Trees provided some nice protection from the wind. Got the crap scared out of me when I took a tight turn and there was a deer standing right there. It didn’t know which way to run and ran toward me at first.

Got Rick’s google-fest thesaurus’s favorite riddle bonus.

Sunrise Time Finally Going Back

I think it was technically earlier this week that the sunrise time started getting earlier, but this time of year it moves seconds a day. Even though days started getting longer around December 21st, the sunrise time still gets later until this week. Today was the first day the minutes went backwards from around 7:21/22.

Kev gets the lamest bridge pic award.

PS everyone, don't add the bridge bonus, I will give @Johnny Utah a list sunday night on who gets it. If you posted a pic here, you will get it... unless you were a whiner about it 😈

All dirt trails at Allaire.

Rode my SS with Hot Action at the Allaire State Park. It was cold, windy and the winter has not been to kind to Allaire due to the rain, freezing temps and then thaw. It is supposed to stay cold, lets see.
Hope you all keep peddaling and have a great weekend.

I have not counted any, even if posted. Counting on you to provide the full list of everyone who earned the bonus! Figured this way would leave out confusion/double counting.

Missed the part about the bridge needing to be the coolest.
