Riding is pretty much done for me until spring. We have had a few snows and temps are hovering around freezing. Worst part about living in Michigan is the 7 month period known as winter that starts some time in November most years.

I took a week off cycling and all physical activity besides walking while on vacation. And tbh I overindulged the whole time.

Went back on the bike this weekend and could barely complete a 40 mile ride. You lose it so fast…

I managed to squeak in a 15 mile ride today before it got dark. Mid-50's, so tolerable weather. Going to be fewer and fewer of those days for a while.

There's nothing like the real thing to keep up the tempo, an indoor bike is okay but it's not the same as being outside.

I can get a decent workout on the trainer if I push it. Not as enjoyable as outside riding, but it's not freezing cold and there's no wind, so there's that.

Did 10 miles on the local roads today while trying out my new Bar Mitts for my straight handlebar hybrid bike. They worked as well as the Bar Mitts on my road bikes. Also trying x-country ski pants instead of bib tights. They also worked well. Had a pair of MTB liners under them. 31F here and I stayed toasty warm.
