Today's mild and sunny weather seemed too perfect to pass up, so with the boys in tow, I headed to the zoo...in the car. As I left Grinder and drove along Kingston Rd. (and saw Trish out running) I started to think back about last season. The many Saturday mornings that started out just like that, cruising along Kingston, watching the sun rise, just enjoying being out on the open road.
I do have to admit that the hills ARE much easier in the car, especially the (H)Ellsmere climb when you leave the zoo. I saw a few random cyclists out and was rather envious, I have to say, although the thought of being on the hybrid, with the two boys loaded into the chariot (yikes!) made those thoughts fade.
Now, before you say it, yes, I know that the winter so far hasn't been all THAT nasty, and if I wasn't being such a delicate flower, I could be out there now enjoying some winter riding.....which I just might do if these milder temps persist. May be time to unleash the blue beast back on the roads.....a little weight training in the off season can't hurt, right? Until then, think it might be time to pop back in the Coming of Age DVD....
Looking forward to the real spring and being back on the roads again with everyone!
