Heatin’ that there Whiteout Chili to be later eaten is what I’m sayin’. Grillin’ a few Lightlife Dawgs to be later chilin’ needs dealin’.
Steps up from my normal cycling activities will be underway this (2017:) year and years to follow. I plan to ride close to 10,000 km (6250 miles) this year. My first ever competitive cycling event may take place this July. Also, a solo CUBS parade will be ridden the majority of the length of long Illinois.
Being under the weather to start 2017 has allowed for good rest, just not a lot of cycling. The only two rides this year have been commutes on the coldest of days. Perhaps a longer ride today.
WhiteoutChili MacNDaiya is self-explanatory, however, I used Macaroni, Whiteout Chili, Daiya and Smart Dogs. Click on links for further details. I found two more beers from a brewery not too far away that only furthers my respect for the brewery Triptych out of Savoy, Illinois near Champaign-Urbana. A rum barrel-aged Stout and a black IPA were thoroughly enjoyed in construction of Whiteout Chili MacNDaiya euphoria.
I’ve heard from numerous people about how this winter, in the midwest states, was going to be brutally cold and wet. I’ve realized in my time here in the midwest that January is by far the harshest winter month. Next week for the Illinois Valley there’s a high of 47 degrees F. This winter has had a few extremely cold spells and a little snow, but climate change might have a huge impact on this winter and winters moving forward.
Hang in. Have fun. Happy Weekend.
