Tougher Than You : Part 1

tougher_than_you_09.jpg

In the Northern Hemisphere our Winter begins December 21st and ends on March 19th. Growing up in Richmond California meant Winters for me were no worse than a warm fall day here on the East Coast. This has been my fourth Winter in NYC and this has been by far the worst. I am not alone in this statement. This years Winter has been relentless and we're all eagerly awaiting the arrival of Spring. I made a goal for myself this year to ride as much as I could during these three months. I knew it would be tough but with the right gear it was totally possible.

The following series Tougher Than You will take you through my journey of suffering throughout New Yorks harshest Winter.

Fall is Beautiful

I've had one day off work in the past 20 days. Making commercials isn't always easy. Though I have to come in this weekend scheduling is pretty lenient and I managed to sneak in a quick 50 miler out to River Road and back. .....It's fall in NYC and it's pretty fucking beautiful.

I don't think I am alone in saying this. Crossing the GWB is definitely one of the highlights of this ride. The views are generally epic.

My iphone could never capture how vibrant River Road is right now.

The weather has been so oppressive lately there were a bunch of people out there this AM enjoying the weather. Large group rides are fucking annoying though.

My Affinity has been a great bike.

Play time is over. Quick shower + lunch in Brooklyn before heading back into Manhattan. Never not working. Creative slave.
