Cold Hands, Frozen Feet, Unprepared Yet Again



I really should look in to things before a ride starts. Some critical but basic questions should be asked..

*Do I have a bike?
*Is said bike good to ride?
*How is the weather?
*Do I have the proper clothing for this ride?
*Did I eat properly?
*Will my wife be mad if I leave?
*Do I have a proper route planned out? (guess that doesn't really matter.)
*Do I look good for the ride?
    --How's the hair?
    --Anything in my teeth?
    --The tattoos.. Will they be visible and if not, what the hell brother!?

I didn'r pre ride check and left with summer gloves and summer shoes. I lierally looked at the winter clothing and left without. I did grab the winter jacket so I get some points there.

The ride which was supposed to last a good portion of the day lasted maybe an hour and a half. The river valley bathrooms were a haven for warmth.

I may look a bit off but it is September the 15th.. Not really in Winter mode right now.
