I was out on a day long group ride today and the weather was just freaking weird. Started off at 30′ with icy patches on the ground. Then we hit freezing fog which lasted for about an hour. Just when I thought my fingers were about to break off we turn a corner and get hit with WARM 40mph winds. I’m getting frostbite on my fingers and I feel hot air blowing up my helmet. The temp gauge on my bike went from 35′ to 60′ in the space of a few minutes. Then later on the winds died down and the temp dropped to a manageable 40′.A good day’s riding.
It was the first time I’ve been riding with you cruiser types. I can start to see the appeal of loud pipes. Definitely gives you a feeling of raw power but I’m not sure I could live with it every time I went out. Was only my second time out on a group ride and I’m not sure if I really like it. This group was a bit too bunched up for my liking, almost parade formation at times. I tried to hang off the back but didn’t manage always manage it. Nice to meet other riders though.
