In Pittsburgh, we belonged to a bicycling club called the Western Pennsylvania Wheelmen. Every year on New Year's Day, the WPW would have an "Icicle Bicycle Ride." No matter the weather, no matter how cold or snowy, they'd bundle up early in the morning and ride through the city, maybe 30 miles or so, and stop somewhere for coffee or hot chocolate afterwards. Bob took this ride several times. Me, never. Even though I grew up and lived my whole life in the north, I never appreciated winter.
We thought it would be fun for the family to take our own Louisiana-style icicle bicycle ride today. Hey, it's been chilly here! And quite blustery today. We had the sense to wait till it "warmed up" to around 50 degrees. Then we bundled up, truly, and took off. Didn't go that far or very fast, but it felt great to be out in the sunshine.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy, active New Year!
