Friday the 18th

It was warm for a couple of days this week, but it's been getting cooler in the morning. It was 39 degrees Fahrenheit THIS morning. On the KGB Dave was saying that just because we live in SoCal doesn't mean we don't know cold weather. That's it's not ALWAYS 75 degrees Fahrenheit at 2 in the morning! And that many of us SoCalers come from distant lands where there is snow quite ab it of the winter. I believe Dave himself comes from WisCONsin, or maybe MinneSOta.

I, myself, have experienced sub-zero temperatures (Well, chill factors.) while visiting my uncle's place in Wichita Falls, Texas.

And I hear tell there might be some rain next week!

My bicycle shorts have split a seam, I thought I ought to share it with you.

It a little breezy down there, but nothing is revealed, as yet, since the Lycra is still in good shape. Do not be alarmed by what looks like a pile of, well, something. It's really a fossilized snail shell, probably fossil ammonite.

Managed to ring up 53.10 miles commuting this week on Jamis, at an average speed of 12.23 mph. I really had to push it to get the average that high, it was 11.2 mph on Tuesday. I noticed the Fat Cyclist averaged around 19 mph for the first 40 miles of his 100 Miles On Rollers epic fund-raiser. I am seriously depressed...

That's not cold... While walking to work Friday Morning I saw a guy on a Recumbent Bike on Franklin Street in Downtown Boston. It was ~13° F at the time.

See my Blog Posting on the sighting:

Proof That Recumbent Riders are Indeed Oddballs...
