Any who read this blog will realize the updates have been slow lately. Mostly it is because I have been fairly busy on the weekends lately. Or, the weather has been rainy. I have been out a few times, however, with a nice 100+ mile trip last week to get some wine for Thanksgiving.Went to see “Spectre” with my dad the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I was a great day out when we left the theater about 1:30. Nearly 65 degrees, and sunny! So, I went home, grabbed the helmet and jacket and jumped on the bike. I was just gonna ride around for a little, but found myself in Eminence, KY. There is a small winery there, and as I needed to get some wine for the holiday, I headed over to it to do a quick tasting and grab some wine.
3 hours later and I am finding myself stuck in traffic in the middle of northern Oldhamn County as school is letting out… What I get for not paying attention to the time and finding a different route. I can’t complain too much about it, it was such a nice day out, and was still plenty warm, especially when sitting still. I did realize, as the sun was sinking, along with the temperature, I needed to start putting away for those heated gloves…
On Thanksgiving, I went riding around a bit as well. It was a nice day, there was very little traffic and I didn’t have to be to dinner until around 2 or so. Ended up over in Indiana and back again, around the south end of town and the east, ending with a ride through Sleepy Hollow and Covered Bridge roads.
Now, to work on those gloves, which will easily allow me to ride into the colder temps.
