December Frostbite Rides

December cycling kicks off on Saturday! Our group has dwindled down to just a few riders... (maybe even down to just one?) The start time in December moves to 8:00 a.m. (or 7:30 -- Read the "comments" and weigh in.) If the streets are clear and ice-free, and the temps are above 32, there should be a ride heading out. Any doubts, email Tam at tamcronin@gmail.com or call/text her cell. Since the ridership will be small, we'll mix up the destinations and find new places and coffee shops. (The Beverly Farms Dunkin' Donuts was a great spot!)

If its too cold for you, try the Expresso bikes or indoor spin classes at the YMCA and JCC. They're a bit more intense than a typical Cyclopath ride, but they're a great cycling alternative through the winter months. Stay warm!

Hey gang, I'd like to move the start time to 8. I woke up last week at 6 am to head out by 6:40 (I ride over to Salem from Swampscott) only to find myself alone in Salem at 7 am and it was cold! I don't know who else is riding at this point... The extra hour brings the temperature up a bit and will make it easier. If there's an objection, I'm fine to move it to 7:30 -- but if it stays at 7, I'll either catch up with you later or ride alone. :)

LOVE the pic of Freeze Mizer! My second favorite X Mas cartoon after The Grinch. I do not plan on riding. My friend Bernie and her family are coming up to visit this weekend.
Stay warm. Happy & Safe pedaling.

No, no, DC... it's the Abominable Snowman!! Snow Miser has icicles on his nose which grosses me out. :)

It actually sounds like it's going to be COLD on Saturday. Go figure. MISS YOU!

Oooops. My bad. Want to just meet for breakfast at the Wenham Teahouse?!

I'm still planning to ride tomorrow, but would LOVE to go to the Wenham Teahouse and meet you there! What time do you want to meet? It doesn't open until 8. Would 8:45 or 9 be too late for you? That way, if we bike from Salem at 8, we'll have plenty of time to get to the teahouse! (Plus, you have Bernie and family to rally.) Let me know. I'll give you a call later.

DOES THAT WORK FOR ANYONE ELSE?? (If you want to move the time back to 7:30, I'm o.k. with that. But 7 is too early for me.) Let me know!! I haven't hear a peep!

Dear Tammy, Fran and I have tickets for HD opera at Revere theater tomorrow. Usually we leave about 11:45 am to get good seats. I don't think I can ride and make the opera, too. So I accept your suggestion: I shall tread mill tomorrow at JCC at 6:30 am. Grateful thanks to you for keeping the Cyclopaths alive. Best, Cyclopath Sheldon
