Chilly, but hey. It's Canada

Not warm today, but also not nearly cold enough to keep me off the bike. And off the turbo and/or rollers. Speaking of which, roller races last night.. and they were a blast! A good crowd of friendly folks to encourage us (and more particularly me) as I attempted to not embarrass myself in the kilo and the 5km. I only fell off in the 5km. No damage done, but judging from the noises of the crowd it was pretty sweet. I still managed to climb back up and finish er' up as the crash was in the last kilo. A great night, and thanks again go out to John and the Wheelers for putting on this event. Met up with the Cyclery boys this morning for a good 3 hour jaunt into the winds. Seriously, it was windy. In addition to being bottle freezing cold. But a good time was had by all and the hammer got put down a couple of times. No falling this time. Happy birthday will have to go out to my mom, and I will soon be cheffing up a birthday feast suitable for a woman who has had to bear with me and my shinanigans for the last 23 years. The lamb alone should make up for at least a couple of the worst years. I learned today 2 things as well: Ottawa has not seen a true snow fall for 43 days (exciting for the more 2 wheeled inclined of us), and second of all there are still people up skiing in the Gatineaus. What is up with that? I for one am much more content on the bike, and finishing up with a nice lunch and some coffee in the sun. Cheers
