Default Winter Riding in the North East

It was a sunny Hot mid 40 degree day today and I got the Hammer out for a nice ride. It felt good after not riding for about a month because it was cold /rainy/snowy up here in NY. Who else rode Today? Maybe Lilmags

Holy crap that is cold. In winter I ride here when it's like 60F and freeze my nuts off.

Didn't ride yesterday but Sunday I disconnected the Battery Tender, checked the tire pressure, started up my Hammer (after a month of no riding) and went for about a 30 minute ride. It was about 42 degrees with a little sunshine. Had I taken the time to dress a little better, I could have gone longer but I didn't have a lot of time to begin with because I had plans to head out into the woods on my other kind of bike - the one with pedals to do some MTBing.

Unfortunately I snapped the derailleur hanger half way through the ride and had to walk out of the woods. But I wasn't cold...

Yep ....got out both Sunday and yesterday ..... did a full tank of gas between the 2 days.

Temps on Sunday were low 40's ...with some peaks of sun. The roads were washed pretty good from the heavy rains on Friday > Sat ...then dried by the 40 mph wind gusts on Saturday......

Yesterday was a little warmer ...but very little sun.

Both days were very enjoyable !!!
