Ice Cycle

I just went for a bracing winter bicycle ride and am now hella braced.

One interesting thing about rides this late in the year is that you find yourself simultaneously sweating profusely and chilled to the bone, a condition that otherwise only occurs if you (a) have contracted hypothermia or (b) are reading a Stephen King novel while fireside.

It was especially difficult to ride so soon after the Thankgiving, as my legs, which used to contain muscles and bone, are now packed with four days worth of pumpkin pie filling.

  1. Good for you to get back on the bike when it’s cold outside. I went for an easy 2-mile run when it was only 43* this morning & was surprised when I took off my tights that my legs were still amazingly cold.
