Santa was kind to me this year, he brought me a new Brooks B-17 saddle. I've heard a great deal about these saddles for a long time and Santa delivered.
For my Christmas Day ride today, I covered my new saddle with two plastic bags to keep it dry.
We had a white Christmas very early morning, but temps overnight in the mid-40's with a great deal of rain washed and melted away our snow.
Half-way through the ride it started to rain again. I wore cotton stretch tights beneath my ski wind pants. The wind pants are not waterproof, so near the end of my 23 mile ride my legs were getting quite cool.
I rode down to New Haven, then jumped on the Rivergreenway and rode towards Fort Wayne. The Park Dept. plowed this stretch of trail, and it was nice to ride without worrying about cars.
Although the rain was quite heavy at times during the ride, I was glad to have the chance to get out.
Merry Christmas everyone!
