Here I go, slacking off again. I made plans with N.D. to go for a ride, but when I went out to the garage to get my bike, it was cold and windy, and I didn't want to go. I tried to wimp out, but I was shamed into going, and it turned out to be a good thing.

N.D. showed up for the ride, wearing shorts! He said he needed to get used to the cold, for some mountain adventures that he has coming up. Maybe his bare legs added some speed to his riding, because he was flying around the trails, and I couldn't keep up with him. I just haven't been doing enough riding. Maybe as the daylight hours start to get a little bit longer, I'll be more motivated to get out, and hit the trails.

We made a loop through the park, and it even seemed to warm up as the afternoon went on. Temps were probably in the 40s, with the wind chill making it seem like 30s. I'm looking forward to the days when it is back in the 90s. We had a little bit of rain last week, and two cloudy days. It was hardly a spit of moisture, but I did have to use my windshield wipers for a few minutes. There is still hardly any snow on the mountain. This has been a major failure of a winter, so far. I'm not minding this at all. I love the desert!
