    It sure does feel nice after so many months of full on winter tights.

    The cool air on the legs felt really nice this morning.

    The only things whiter than my legs were my new socks.

    My first day in shorts and mits.

    Unfortunately it was overcast and cool at the start of the ride so I decided on a Marino base layer! What a mistake. High winds, trying to keep up with a retired racer, 50 miles in I've already finished a 750ml bottle and I'm boiling in the sun that found its way past the cloud! It was a long hard 20 miles home!

    Base layer now washed will join the bib longs in summer storage. Lesson learned.
  • I too have been wearing short sleeves, mitts and summer cap. Normally I'd wait until it's a bit warmer, but for now I'll carry on. Nice to be able to...
