    Default VSalon Member Rides Jan 25, 2021 to Jan 31, 2021 I am Legend... or Omega Man

    FWIW, the trail from the South County Trail to Van Cortlandt Park is freshly paved and open. It is really nice and drops you right on Broadway by Manhattan College. You can just cruise fown Broadway if you like riding under the tracks, or go to the river and ride the MUT down.

    The roads in Manhattan/Riverdale are still empty Sunday mornings so it is an enjoyable ride. The kid hooligans on bikes don't show up until after lunch in Midtown, so you don't need to worry about them

    48th and Lex looking down to Chrysler on Sunday. so Empty a bit spooky







    Fortunately, the wolves and lions are still captive in the zoo.

    Does it look cold? It is cold!





    Without the shades, I look like the gimp from Pulp Fiction. With Oakleys, I am channeling Optimus Prime.

    Seirus makes many different types. I have a combo which is really nice when below 25. I also use a TNF Neck Gaiter and if it is really cold, I add a TNF Skull cap for extra head warm. I think I am going to focus on doing the Arrowhead135 in either '22 or '23. I need to start dialing in cold weather gear. I have to figure out my feet.

    Sheep know how to stay warm when it's cold, and so do I.
