I needed to get a long ride in and already did 2 hours on the trainer yesterday, so it was time to get outside despite temperatures around 5 F and 15-20 mph winds. So I rolled out the door at 6:45am expecting the worse, and for the most part, I got it. I met Bob Rodgers in Bedford at "around" 8am (Rick, for the record, I was not late). Bob and I had decided the night before that it would be a good idea to ride to Akron and back on the Towpath. So we did. Near blizzards, chilly winds, sun, 80-90 miles and nearly 7 hours later I arrived home. We have the pictures to prove it.
