Day 13: Only a couple of miles if that. It was about 35F and raining. Checked out a bike path I hadn’t been on for awhile. Tried out some gloves my son gave me last year, against the wet and cold. They’re some wool mitts that I think he picked up at Cabelas. I was certain that they would be cold once wet, but dang if they didn’t keep my hands warm even after they soaked through. Not bad!
Day 14. Before I could even get a ride planned, my mom called. Asked if I wanted to go to lunch. Couldn’t really turn down lunch with Mom, now could I. So instead I had lunch with Moms and my Aunt, then went for a little spin afterwords, around the neighborhood.
Day 15: Club ride, Jefferson to Independence. 36+ miles. Gorgeous day, but cold and a bit of the north wind. Luckily the return was somewhat south-ish.

Day 16: Short ride over to the lake for a few photo ops and to stretch the legs a little. The lake had just a touch of ice on it's surface. Just over 4 miles.
