Hibernatus

Yeah, I know. Haven’t put up any posts in a while. That’s because I haven’t been riding much since Death Valley. This time of year, as the weather turns colder and the season turns busier, motivation to go riding drops off. I’ve been cycling mainly on Saturday mornings, and that’s it.

I’m not much into riding when the temps drop to the low 40s in the mornings. Sure, I could go later in the day, but then the … well … day gets in the way. And the traffic is much worse after the early morning hours.

Besides, this time of year my body wants to go into hibernation mode. So I let it, and in the meantime, I’ve kept myself busy with the programming project I’m working on. I’ve put in a lot of late-night hours on that, holed up in my computer/man cave.

I’ll crawl out of my hole sometime in January, and start thinking about whatever cycling goals I can dream up for 2013. Meanwhile, I’m rather enjoying the hibernation/hiatus.

Everyone have a happy New Year!
