I hate Winter. The winter solstice is the most depressing and optimistic day of the year. Things hit bottom and only get brighter from the solstice. So while the solstice is 12/21, the next day 12/22 is just a touch longer and the moon will be completely full. Reason to celebrate. And if that wasn’t enough it is the eve before Bjoern’s birthday - WCC’s original beacon of hope and sunshine. The ride says 30 miles...it could 1, 5, 30. Conditions will dictate. An excuse to saddle up and then adjourn to “a clean, well lighted place” for a drink or two. Fat tires, warm clothes, LOTS of lights. Some slow cold fun. Route to follow.
