We've had some pretty cold weather (for Raleigh) this week. So naturally, this is the week I broke out the bike and started riding. Not much will wake you up as effectively as riding a bicycle 18 or 20mph in 35-degree weather with winds gusting to 25mph.
I got in 65 miles over 4 days this week, pretty light by last summer's standards, but a good way to start up the season. Bike riding has kinda taken the place of running while I'm waiting for my hamstring to start behaving again.
It's supposed to be warming up around here for the next week or so, starting this weekend with highs in the upper 60's or low 70's. Now THAT will be some great biking weather.
