A few cyclists from San Angelo and we were scheduled to go to Abilene Saturday March 20, to participate in the Steam-N-Wheels bicycle race/tour. The ever changable Texas weather modified the event director's and our plans somewhat. A cold front moved in early Saturday morning. The high that day was to be 36 degrees with winds out of the north at 23-36. The Weather Channel reported light snow. The event was cancelled. Hopefully the event will be re-scheduled on a weekend when we do not have another ride lined up.

I know we will not receive sympathy or pity from Steve or Mama Nikki from Vancouver, or Trudi from Calgary, nor Jill from Juneau. But in Texas 36 degrees F. with 23 mph winds is COLD. We do not have Parka cycling jackets, thermal tights, or battery warmed booties.

Soon all this will pass, and I will be complaining about 100+ degree weather, but our Texas events are not cancelled due to heat.

Hope to report on Steam-N-Wheels soon.

Post script: The event has been cancelled this year. The next Steam-N-Wheels is scheduled for Saturday, March 19, 2011.
