Get out and ride, Darin! Cold and snow just means less people in the way and no bugs. I did a short ride on Monday night, subzero the entire time, really didn't feel that cold. An extra layer and foot warmers in my boots and I was nice and toasty. I had planned to ride further, but the trail was too snowy so I had to hit the roads and all the red lights and stop signs made my goggles fog up and ice over way too fast.
So...apparently my email hates certain addresses lately and refuses to send to said peeps...If you have not heard a response from me...the ride is still on for Friday! You still must find your own way back. You should try and let me know a total number of folks at the food truck ending by this afternoon. i can then let the food truck know how much to buy...
