Sixty Degrees in January

Just a few days after spending a frigid weekend at cyclocross nationals the snow disappeared from New York City and the thermometer started pushing sixty degrees. 

In those conditions we decided we couldn't miss a mid-day ride - even if River Road was in rough shape, complete with chainsaw wielding workers clearing tree branches and heavy construction equipment working on rock slide debries.
