    by definition "rounders" don't have a single season. so you continue on with your rounder efforts bubba - obviously mother nature is not aware that once the bmwmoa milage contest starts that you are supposed to have lovely weather each and every day. it is a lot warmer here.....39 degrees as i prepare for work....least there ain't no rain.

    Just a little rant for a Thursday morning: I am SO ready for Spring! I am SO sick of putting ALL of my gear on to go for a ride!!!!

    It takes me forever to gear up and I feel like the stay-puff marshmallow while riding. Ugh!

    37 degrees here in Milwaukee.

    Mid 60s and off and on rain here in Marin today. Should be clearer and warmer this weekend. We're winding down our 'winter' weather, which consists of rain. When it stops some time over the next couple weeks, we won't see rain again until this fall.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    When I was down in the shipping area at work today, I asked about shipping snowballs. Just so you know. It is possible, and I now know how to do it

    I think I'll celebrate my first day of un-employment by taking a ride...it's going to be 60 and sunny....I'm only scheduling job interviews when it's raining...like Monday.

    I don't THINK Rounder Season is over quite yet. I fly to Seattle later today to pick up a bike I bought and ride it 1300 miles back home. It snowed all day yesterday here in Colorado and apparently all last night, too. Woke up to about six inches of the nasty binniz in the street. The weather map shows that I am going to have a nasty ride the whole way. [insert foul language here]

    if my understanding is correct, rounder season by definition is never over. rounders ride year round.

    You are correct sir. There is no end to Rounder season, we are rounders cause we ride year round. So as soon as one season ends, say December 31, the new one begins the next day, January 1.
