it was downright cold this morning. Had to wear my winter gloves and put on that hi vis jacket. No getting around it. I made it to the group camping area, and had almost decided to turn around. After standing in sun for a minute I kept going. Glad i did. Decent ride. Went a bit further and i will go even more on the next ride. I will do some off road pretty soon also. I hope. I do wish i had a compatible riding partner.
