A great cycle ride today. V. cold start, the temp was 32°f at 8 am, but rose to 50°f by 9 am and 80°f in the afternoon.

At Alpine visited the local saddlery, where Keith bought some Jingle Bobs.

This evening Molly and I cooked a beef stew. I followed this with an 18 year old Caol Ila malt whisky. This was meant as both a carrot to help me through the cooking process and a delayed celebration of passing through the 1000 mile mark. Only 9,000 or so to go!
