It took 15 days but it arrived.
The first day of 2017 to get on the bike and ride.
The temps were down around 30°F. A little below to begin, a little above on the ride back.
It’s not so much temperature as it is the possibility of ice on the road.
The last few days have given way to warmer temps, no new moisture, and a chance for the roads and gutters to be clear and dry.
It felt good. It felt free. It felt like it should.
The new heated gloves were kind of nice too.
