48.1 km I saw someone else biking for the first time in several rides. We nodded as we passed each other – he had a crazy look on his face as he raced by. I wonder if he thought the same of me. It should be a few degrees above freezing tomorrow. Total distance 681.4 km Total Ascent: 8,197 metres Total Calories: 24,792 will-davies.com

32.2 km The Weather forecast said -7 Celsius for the morning and warming up to -2 C in afternoon. So, despite having all my gear on early, I waited, stuck my toe outside, and waited.

The bike paths were too icy to use, but there are enough cleared quiet roads to be safe enough. I’ll be happy when it warms up a little. Ice is no fun on a bike.

I woke up without a cold and super motivated to go cycling. Opened the window and yikes! A foot of snow! So we went for a 9km hike through the woods near home. I’m really wrestling with whether kilometres hiked should count towards my 10,000 goal.
