Spin and Spun

So I threw down a lofty gauntlet for myself two post ago to ride at least twice a month and to ride more miles in the current month than I did in the previous. Last year I made it to July before faltering. Well, I'm proud to announce that the month of January can be checked off. It will only get harder from here, but the weather will get warmer and more friends will come out of hibernation to pedal with me. Two weeks ago, last weekend and this weekend Grant and I braved Richmond's mild winter and extreme cold (22º) to cruise around the Fan and Riverside.

1/3/2009: 13.67 mile Patterson and Grove loop
1/10/2009: 23.31 mile West End to Riverside loop
1/17/2009: 19.01 mile West End to The Fan loop

The rest is in the photos...

I'm so glad you all are biking again and I am very impressed that the cold hasn't gotten in the way!
