Last ride of the year. Jose and I decided it was a good idea to use our day off to ride at 7 a.m. in the morning of December 31st. I have to say that it was pretty cold, and I didn't bring any leg warmers. Anyway, we started at 92 and Canada (much like yesterday's ride). But today was Jenny's maiden voyage. Yes, I've named my fixed-gear bike Jenny. Temperature according to the CRV's in-dash said 41 degrees fahrenheit but based on my wind-chill estimate plus relative frozen roadside puddle observations, I think it's safe to say that we started at about around 30 degrees for the ride. The temperature dramatically improved thirty minutes into Canada road and we were greeted by more cyclists towards the end of our ride. The fixed gear topped out at about 27 miles per hour downhill and my legs didn't feel so bad uphill. I am thoroughly convinced that this bike will be one of my favorites from now on. Happy new year to all.
