Commuting this week will be in 55 mph wind gusts and temps down to 6 degrees with the wind chill.
Kevin, maybe you're just getting a little old.
I know 44 miles would get my knees sore so I try to get out of the saddle with smaller and especially larger climbs rather than spin 'em. Seems to help me.
Wind up that way, too? Winter's making another run at us here in the PDX area. The winds are pushing the cold air mass in.
My commutes over the last few weeks have been great on the rigid 29er. Hitting the trails around my community either on the way to work or on the way home. Drove the car today, though. Bone chilling wet and cool. I would have never warmed up at work and so I just wasn't in the mood. I'm usually pretty hardcore but not today.
