Winter Wrap-Up, PMC Winter Cycle

March 13: Nor'easter brewing
Red Skies in Morning, Sailors take warning

Winter is over! Woot woot! We had a relatively mild winter with very little snow, but the monotonous gray days seemed endless. February and March were a long haul, and I took a break from the blog. Kathy came out to ride the PMC Winter Cycle on the coldest weekend of the year. We had a great time riding for a great cause, raising over $1,250 for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute between us. Many, many thanks to our sponsors!

Feb 4th: -8F degrees at Fenway Park

The dry winter allowed for some riding, but not in the same vein as in the past. I've yet to ride more than 15 miles on the bike this winter -- especially since I spend more time on the mountain bike than road bike. I'm making good use of the treadmill, however, and hope to be running again this spring.

Thirty Days of Biking began today!  This will be my tenth and final year riding this challenge. Ten years ago, these April rides were folded into many of my coached training rides as I prepared for different events. Long distance endurance rides were my jam back then. These days, I'm just riding for the coffee stop. Lol.

It was a rainy start to Year 10. I'll post photos in batches as I go along. Twenty-nine more rides to go.
