The temp hit 67*F according to the thermometer so I thought it would be a good day for a ride to check out the new helmet. Carefully pushed the bike over the ice in front of the shop door out to the gravel, took a bit to get it running, and then suited up. Did 50 miles around the "local" neighborhood, up HWY 385 through Wind Cave National Park to Pringle and then south on HWY 89 to HWY 18 and then back to Hot Springs. Twas not a "great" day for a bike ride though. I do believe the thermometer was lying as it only felt like the low 50's. I have the "first" ride of 2018 in the books now..................
