When I checked the local Weather Channel page at 3:45 today, it reported the temperature at 51°. I quickly decided that a ride was in order and left work early. My office is in a basement, so I can't see what the conditions are like outside. I was happy to find a sunny day with not too much wind. I drove home and changed clothes.

Unfortunately, the sun was covered with clouds by the time I got outside. Still, it was at least 45°, so I headed towards Granville. The ride was uneventful, but it felt good. I arrived at the bridge pretty quickly.

Heading back home, I took River Road past the Gourd house and the Fort, and returned home on Newman Road. The horses were having supper.

Will this be the last ride of the year? I thought the last one was.

Found your blog from Stormcrowe. I live in Moreland, GA and find it crazy that the town south of me is Grantville and one town north is Newnan. I thought you were from around these parts. I have been reading post by cyclist and I have started a blog that I hope to chart and show MY progress getting back in the saddle.

Did you ever get the cycling pants and do they work. I feel bad for asking because we have mild weather here. What we call winter everone else thinks its spring.

Thanks for the blog.

Hey, Dan, I was around those parts yesterday myself! Gorgeous weather! I actually wore my new cycling shorts and Jersey. Hard to believe that this is the end of December, reminds me of Chattanooga weather! I see I have readers I didn't know about! Hey Joe!

By the way, Dan, I corrected an oversight on my part, and have added your December miles to the DB. You will appear on the Spinner Graph on the monday graphing post
