I want to Ride my bike

Adventures in Tahoe and beyond

Coping with the Cold

Liquid motivation

Yesterday’s ride turned from chilly to unpleasant when the sun disappeared behind clouds and the wind picked up. We were at almost the half-way point of the loop i.e. the farthest point from home so we had no choice but to continue on with the ride. With half-numb fingers and toes and only a couple of miles left to go, my riding buddy reminded me of hot chocolate- the cold weather treat. Yes! How could I have forgotten? As we time-trialed it home, I had only two alternating thoughts: 1) Hot chocolate! and 2) Riding outside is so much better than the trainer, even if you can’t feel your hands, feet or face.
