    Bright and sunny here today, but man was it windy. Head or cross most of the way and I can feel the reduced riding and general exercise of the last few weeks.

    Back on the bike after a full week. Felt great!

    Very nice ride in this morning. 6C and sunny, hardly any wind. Very enjoyable. Ride home was sunny too but quite windy. It was a tail/crosswind only so not that bad.

    Was quite slow this morning but didnt push it either. Looking forward to the next days of riding

    My sentiments exactly. 10 days off the bike, and I feel like a fat pig. Diet has been horrible. Lack of exercise, and when I put my jersey on today, I got pissed at myself. Headwind both ways today, 54 and sunny for the ride in at least. Cooler for Wednesday but I am still riding, then the rain is supposed to come. Decided that I am not going to ride in freezing weather and rain so I will be back off the bike for at least a few days. This sucks.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    I was right there last week so I took the Fargo out for the first non-Fat bike ride of the year. All of a sudden, I'm fast again (well slightly faster anyway).

    Another nice day today, I will have to get used to it since the forecast is nice ;o))

    5C this morning and a light cross/headwind. Saw 4 roe deers pretty close but didnt have a camera at hand :-/ Wind turned and was headwind again on the way home....at least it was 12C and sunny so no complaints.

    Now that forster is ditching the fatbike I start thinking of putting the conti speedride summer tires back on. Well maybe 2-3 more weeks...

    Not ditching the fat bike just taking it from commuter to off-roader where it belongs.

    It was a cold commute this morning. I thought that the snow was over, and then we got hit with an early Spring snow-storm.

    Pretty similar rides as the last days again, just cloudy today. Felt noticeably colder though.

    Forster: ok got it

    Bedwards: hope the dentist appointment wasnt too bad...

    Ok I hope somebody is going to talk here - I dont like talking to myself only ;o))

    Lovely rides today! It was -1C this morning but sunny and calm. I passed a roe deer only 5 meters/yards away!! It was hiding between some bushes and trees but I spotted it anyway, just tried to look like I wasnt seeing her. I hope this kind of close encounter wont happen when she gets babies...usually they are getting pretty aggressive to defend the kids.

    Made a detour on the way home and logged 30km today. Rode the first part home with a collegue who was going the same way. Pretty nice to be not alone during the ride. Met my wife and kid shortly before home and rode home together. Rode 4 of 5 days this week, good times.

    No riding next week Monday and Tuesday. I am flying to the other plant Monday evening and coming back on Tuesday. Got a hotel so close that I can walk over in like 10-15min.

    Currently the forecast shows temps up to 18!!C next week. Cant wait until its Wednesday.

    Have a nice weekend y'all!

    No commute, but I packed up my road wheels and strapped them to my bag and rode down to the shop to get them trued. Got some rain last night so the MUP was a bit wet still. Couldn't pass the day up though. Currently sunny and 72F and it was in the low 60's when I went in. Got some lunch, hung out at the shop, and then hopped over to the campus and just rode around enjoying the day. Broke a sweat and it felt really good to not be cold. Storms are on their way, and it is supposed to rain most of the weekend. Today, today was really nice. My mom passed away 9 years ago today, and it felt really good to just get out on the bike, pedal away, and think about her. Didn't ride for any KOM's, or worry about how fast or how far I went, the only thing that mattered were that the pedals were turning.
    The pedals turn, not just the left one, but the right one too.

    Back in the saddle this week. Easing back into things and rode three times this week. I've got to re-learn all the organizational techniques I used to know. And I've got to ramp my body back up to a daily commute workload. The occasional road/mountain ride does not equal a daily commute...
