Normally, Jan 1st is for Polar Bear rides. Well, here in central VA it is 60 degrees and sunny. Put on my half helmet (Santa brought it so I figured it was a good day to give it a try) and went for a ride. Mid-winter and still riding. Ya can't beat that!
We rode to a New Years Eve Party last night to celebrate with a girlfriend of ours who's 13 year old girl was hosting a party for all her friends so there were 5 adults and about 15 screaming 13 year old rugrats that almost had the neighbors calling the cops. Party animals they are!
We spent the night and rode back at 9:00am in 38 degree, bright and sunny weather.
We got really lucky in Northern California and had a beautiful New Years Day to ride in.
I got myself invited to a Polar Bear ride along with 24 V-Star's.
It was a 7 hour day for me. Minus out 1 hour for breakfast and 3 short breaks during the ride, and the rest was in the saddle with a big ole grin.
In my opinion, this pic was the best looking bike in the group. (Only cuz you can see my front tire though).
