The Coldest beginning to March Ever.

As our trip to Florida and the Daytona Bike Week concludes, it has become official: This has been the coldest beginning of March in Florida ever. Orlando set and over-night low temperature record last night of 38 degrees. However, the days have been sunny if not warm. And sunny goes a long way in my book.

During our last full day, several of us remarked about the frost still on the roofs of the homes in the housing edition. It wasn't until about 9:30am that all of it had evaporated. John and I left for Daytona shortly after that.

We saw several required-to-visit "hot spots" including The Cabbage Patch Bar, but everywhere we looked we saw the same vendors, same products and same foods.

Finally, we went arrived at a place that is unique:

For the modest price of $3.00 we rode our bikes along the Atlantic ocean on Daytona Beach. Yes, it might have been more enjoyable if the temps were about 20 degrees warmer. But it certainly could not have been more memorable.

Ride Safe

Man, check you out. I get too busy to look at your blog for a bit and here you are having all this fun!

Thanks for sharing. The closest I got was watching the race on television.

Sorry about the truck door thing. Hope the good stuff balanced things out.

Dan - I know all about the too busy part... The trip was great fun and the door incident just a distant memory, now.
