I went for a road ride with N.D., down to the casino, and up to Juan Tabo Picnic Grounds. He thrashed me again, but not quite as badly as last week. I hung in a little bit better, this time. We did La Cueva, and then back to the house. On the descent, we passed a car that was plodding along. I know, I know, there's a double yellow line, but the road was clear.

It was a warm day for February, with temps getting up in to the 60s. I wore my leg warmers again, to protect against the downhills, but I could have just worn shorts. It's hard to imagine riding in shorts in February. In Idaho, if I could go for a ride in April with shorts on, I was thrilled. It was so warm today, that I didn't even take a jacket. I had on a long sleeve polartec shirt, but no windbreaker. There were quite a few clouds, out today, making for another rare, overcast day.
