Thanks to Jeff for making the morning a bit smoother. New gear to test on the commute. It was long and slow today, 2.5 hours with not a whole lot of stopping, just pushing through a foot of fresh. I felt slow the whole time, and sweaty. Not enough vents on a warm morning. I feel like I did 4 hours on the bike. Maybe 5. More than a few broken dishes.
Looking for the clearing in between the blocks. Too much fixed, not enough free; time and bikes. New treats at home, we'll see how the maiden effort comes out tonight or tomorrow. In time it all gets easier, the sadist fades into the rhythm of good (better) weather rides. Right now, I should pretty much shrink wrap myself.
