Learned the lesson from yesterday. Did not layer up enough for a 45 degree motorbike ride (the wind made it worse). Today, I was perhaps overlayered. Took a very circuitous route to my weekend afternoon coffee place, enjoyed some coffee aged in bourbon barrels and caught up on Montaigne.
Check out my answer when the lady asked me what name she should write on my cup!
Finally opened the Christmas present that the family gave me… motorbike jacket that matches the motorbike color!!!
The weather in Atlanta warmed up enough to let me ride to Ballground and settle in the coffee house there for the rest of the day for office video calls and meetings. Rode back in the evening when it was a tad bit cooler.
Relive the ride here…
It was a cold day but the sun was out and the motorbikes have not been out for a week. A 70 mile round trip ride with a coffee break at Barrel House Coffee Company in Ballground. Caught up with Avi after almost a week.
Waiting for Covid test results to come in. Went for a long ride with Phoenix. It was cold and long. But was worth getting out of the house without coming in contact with anybody else. Got so cold that I had to come back and sit in the hot tub for half an hour to get the core temperatures back…
It was only 48 degrees (9 Centigrade) and windy but I had not taken the bike out in a few days. Felt compelled to do so. Rode around Alpharetta and then landed up in Valor coffee. The coffee was great but was a little too crowded. Had to keep my mask on all the time while reading a book and having coffee.
I had not had a bike ride for a week. Usually, if it is 55 degrees (12 Centigrade), I will go out. But being off road for so many days, I finally gave in to the fact that it had not rained, the sun was out intermittently and the temperatures were at least 43 degrees (6 Centigrade).
45 mile round trip and I had get into the hot tub immediately to get the core temperature up…
This one was 30 minutes of ride in fairly cold temperatures. I had more layers on me than a fully grown onion in its prime.
