First Ride to work of 2012

The temperature stayed above freezing overnight for the first time of the year. With enough daylight in the early morning it was time to make the official first ride into work.

Time of 39:11 for 17.2km = 25.9kph

This is pretty terrible considering the 1200 plus km’s I put on over the winter. But there is a reason…I had a chain de-rail while shifting up on the front. That cost me a good 3 minutes to slow down, stop, reinstall, and start going again.

So I will basically ignore this first time. My fingers and toes were quick numb by the time I finished.
