75 miles on the Odo. 30F on the ride in this am. 5-15mph gusts from the West...

Sunday was windy and chilly and a trip to the Mercury Cafe for a bday lunch and then the Great Divide for a couple of samplers with a good friend was well worth it.
The wind turned into a nice tailwind home. Thru the park to look at some possible City Park Jazz locations and then home to do a little bicycle therapy.

33F and another headwind. Gotta love that. I felt like a slug on the trip home.
4 way stops. While I appreciate the gesture, not really, don't wave me thru a stop. It's the law that I have to follow and I would hope that the tank drivers here in Denver would help me and other cyclists by following the same law.
28F slight headwind.
Most of the roads were clear and the one spot with a full sheet of ice had me white knuckling the bars at 5mph. I'm alive and I'm not sure I'll get fully comfortable on ice/snow, it's a start.
Fast. The new setup is very quick and nimble. Shifting is smooth and getting used to trigger shifter v twist took a bit with gloves on.
Ride home was smooth and easy. Going up the hill at 16th and Lincoln was very nice... The new gearing setup and the Alfine hub work well together.
