Warm Weather

I took advantage of today's relatively warm weather to do some outdoor riding. It was 52F and clear this morning, not ideal riding conditions, but still quite good cycling weather. As a cyclists, I think ideal conditions are just about 68 F - warm enough to go out riding in shorts and a jersey, but cool enough to keep me from overheating.

Outdoor riding is a constant reminder of how different cycling in New York City is from riding the rollers. Even while doing high speed laps in a car-free Prospect Park (before 7am), I still have to be on my guard for runners and, well, slower cyclists.

I continue to look forward to the warmer weather. It seems like it's right around the corner. I can't wait to start doing longer rides.
