    Wo Wow, Hot there. High here today 62, tonight 50 but 72 tomorrow. 50s here now. I turned on the heat. I almost started up the wood stove, but I couldn’t bear to do something that ridiculous. It’s dark out from low grey clouds and a stiff north wind. I’m trying to motivate myself into riding...

    The predicted high tomorrow is going to be 62F, but then it’s going to be in the 70s for the next 9 days with one day touching 80F. Still some nice riding weather. The same trees always turn color early. They are stressed, sick or on hilltops.

    No riding today. Sore saddle and toe blisters. No rain today but it’s very windy from the north and temperatures since 9 am have been 54F to 62F. Some trees are starting to change color. Here’s a photo of my front yard today.

    My wife and I rode our vintage mountain bikes twelve miles. I rode this very early Peugeot. It’s chilly out with the strong north winds. So , I have 274 + 12 + 5 = 291.

    Pretty big north wind today. Temp 58F when I got up and it’s now 64F. Perfect for biking but it’s going to rain. I’ll have to find a bike to ride that can get wet. I got a flat on yesterday’s ride and I have to fix that before I hoist it into my shop attic. It’s so easy to be lazy.

    I found out 27 inch tubulars are the same as 700c tubulars. Weird as clinchers are different. The tires hold air real well. I’m taking out the top tube dents from crashes.

    The race is on. I’ve been feeling a little poorly lately. No temp but I have a slight cold coming on, probably from riding many miles in the cold poring rain. LOL, it’s nice now but I haven’t been riding.

    Five additional points for each different bike. Different bike for 10 rides = 50 points + any mileage points you get. The idea is for people to “race” and to ride all their old bikes that might normally remain neglected this year.

    Good thing I got a coat of paint on, the north wind whipped up, too much for paint.
