Now Mike, you shouldn't rub it in. You don't see me talking about the
wonderful winter riding in FL. I mean we whine when low temp gets below
40! I ride two or thee day a week - one long enjoyable ride in 60 to 70
degrees during the weekend. I do feel for those poor people up North, but
we already have too many "snowbrids" here so I don't want them to think it
is too nice.

ride at sunup or ride after dark it is not too bad, however.
