My new favorite #rideafterwork area is Easton , Connecticut. It's about 15 to 20 minutes from the office and in the direction of home so it makes perfect sense to stop off and get a few miles in.
I expanded the route a bit to push it over 20 miles and it included some new roads that I have never been on like Wilson Ave, Beers Road, and Morehouse Highway.
It was simply COLD AF! I brought my lobsters but went with gloves with overmits and my hands didn't warm up until 6 miles into the ride. By the time my hands were warm my chest cooled off considerably. That's when I checked the temperature and it said 30 degrees!
My legs got cold 5 miles out from Aspetuck Park where I started. Temperature on the Garmin read 28 degrees when I got back to the car.
A little Shabadoo from Berkshire Brewing Company helped take the edge off!
