Anyone ride today?

I rode this morning out to aurora. Ride was pretty good until the last 15 mins my hands were getting a little cold but i wore my summer gloves. I cant wait to get out later today and ride. Roads were ok, just keep an eye out

RIP ASHWIN 7/23/2009

ME!!!!

I didn't see any salt the entire way from LITH to Scumburg. The roads were a little damp but other than that it was a great ride. Even better because my bike didn't break down! Yay!

Get some Under Armour glove liners. They are really thin and fit comfortably under regular gloves. I don't feel the cold at all when I ride with them.

I was planning on it but ran out of time (bike's at a friends place about 2 miles in the opposite direction of work). Watching the temps, will probably go get it at lunch and ride after work. Got it out yesterday and saw most of the roads were salt free, but just a little while residue on my tires from where I park along the road once I got to work.

I rode rather than drove to work.

Disclaimer - my ride totaled 1.5 miles as I just drive to train station. My guess is my ride home will be 14 miles.

I rode....roads were OK not great but that never stopped me from riding. Everyone keep an eye out for the cagers...even the few that actually see us usually in the summer aren't looking out for us yet.
The bike will get hosed down when I get home tonight.

That actually good for those of us who didn't ride today(less good for those who did). A good heaping of rain should wash away all the salt.
