New Year's Day Ride

First off, Kasey and I would like to wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year!!

Up until three years ago being in Indiana, riding on the first day of the year was a special event. Of the times I have been able to ride on January One, those rides have cut short by cold winds, rain, and one started out with the mercury hovering five degrees below freezing. Fortunately, the late morning, early afternoon brought temperatures in the mid fifties.

2019 in North Carolina was starting out with clear skies, a sun blazing overhead, and air warming up to near seventy degrees. Just to cover their butts, I believe the local weather forecasters put in a small chance for rain. Those are all ingredients to make it a no-brainier when it comes to going for a ride.

Everything seemed in place, until we were all suited up. For some reason, Kasey couldn't hear me in her Bluetooth headset. All of mine seemed to work perfectly. After a few minutes, we gave up, as the roads were begging us to use them…
