And you know what I did today. Got on my summer gear and whent for a spin. It was excellent. Haven't ridden for a week or so, geting my cross bike together and getting ready for the real winter. I actually broke a sweat today. Wow.

...and it does not look like it will get into the upper 60's until next weekend. Man, I love the winters down here!

it had to have been at least 65 in Central MA today. I took the oppurtunity to ride to the top of Mt. Wachusett. It's hard to believe, Dec. 1, no snow on the Mt., and I was riding up in jersey and shorts! I ran into a couple of Mt. bikers who were riding down the slopes, those crazy kids!

Is it paved? how long is it? I am looking for a hill to train on for the Mt. Washington race.

Yes, there is a paved road that goes to the top. To get there, I start on Rt. 140. You can also get there off some roads in Princeton, but I don't know the names. Off Rt. 140, you start climbing almost instantly. Just keep going past theentrance to the ski area. When the hill crests, you'll see the entrance to the state park. There is a paved road to the top, that is open to autos from May 'till Oct. or Nov. The road was closed to auto's yesterday, but pedestrians and bikes could just go around the gates. They had started to make snow, but it wasn't enought to block the road. Check out: http://www.state.ma.us/dem/parks/wach.htm
Once you find your wayto the Mt., you may consider parking at a location in one of the surrounding towns (unless you already live there). I usually ride from Royalston to the top and back, 56 miles. I've also had people drop me off in Westminister, ride up and home. Yesterday, I parked at the community college in Gardner, rode up and back, 26 miles.

Here in Seattle: 45 degrees, 30-40 mph wind gusts, pissing rain. Made having to work on a Saturday seem not quite so bad, but still....
