Did a little better last night with a short fitness ride, although I’m feeling some stiffness in the legs this morning…in a good kind of way.
I was surprised how much the temperature was dropping between my getting home last night, getting out on the bike, and even during the ride. When I noticed the thermometer hitting 33F I started heading for home, fearing that some of the water still on the roadways would turn into black ice.
As I was headed out of the neighborhood, I came around the corner and spotted a red blinky. First thought was another bike, but it turned out to be a runner with a light clamped onto her jacket. I didn’t see if she had another on the back.
Strange moment: riding along Old Schoolhouse Lane at 7:00pm, with nothing around but a horse pasture, I swear I get a wiff of fresh brewed coffee.
