Winter has a tight grip on us southlanders. I don't think it got higher than the mid 60's in the mountains, today.

I even had to break out the leg warmers.

Winter is effing brutal!

Well that will learn you and your crew, you all in reality should well be carving up the trails down under in my neck of the woods! ;)

temps today in SoWI were between -5 and +5, with wind chills -5 to -20. Then again, I didn't ride either...

Today we headed "South" to Monterey to ride Fort Ord. Been a few days since any rain, the dirt was V-E-L-C-R-O and the temps were mid-60's. No leg, arm or any other types of warmers needed until the sun started to go down and temps dropped pretty quickly then (4:00-ish). Sweating on January 2nd is a nice treat for NorCal riders, but it was really warm today. Maybe even warmer than Big Laguna or the 'macas.... Happy New Year and an even happier new year that was had by those of us lucky enough to go out and play on our bikes, whatever the conditions were...

I think central Africa got down to 25 this morning. Celsius, that is. Gets chilly during the rainy season, ya know? Riding was also fantastic.

I miss riding Noble during a snowstorm, though, Aqua.

We're having a cold snap in Miami too. Was 50 degrees yesterday morning - I had to go buy some arm warmers! Typically - it's short sleeve and shorts year round here.

Nice tease.:nono:

-16 for me on yesterday's ride with a windchill near -30. Now riding in that requires a bit more than leg warmers....:p

Rear King ISO hub stopped engaging properly after 15 minutes due to the grease freezing up. If I stopped pedaling, I could spin the cranks 2 full revolutions before getting engagement again.

We've got a warming trend today though. It's supposed to make it up to 6 degrees.:skep: So maybe some time on the snow covered gravel roads is in order to take advantage of the heat wave.....
