It was 1°C in the morning. I was worried about black ice, but I didn't come across any.
I did ride over a short distance of ice in the shoulder within a few minutes of my start.
But it was plain old ice and just crackled under my tires.
I had a high of 6° and it cooled off as soon as the sun went down and I finished in 2°.
I was comfortable the whole time.
I had a flat tire on Ballam Rd, and it took me a l-o-n-g time to repair it!
I haven't had a flat in a while, and I think I need a tutorial in tire changing so that I can do it quicker!
The good thing about having that flat was that it put me in a beautiful scene around sunset.
Pink mountains to the right of me, orange sunset to the left!
Surrounded in GORGEOUSNESS!
I wouldn't have had that vantage point, at that time, if I hadn't had the flat...
Silver linings... : )
Michel joined me for the last 50 km for the very dark farm roads...
Glad to have done my January Permanent.
