I set out on November 20th to try a new route that would be 49 miles on my upcoming 49th birthday. The temperature was in the 50's but it felt a lot colder. Since I was testing out a new route, I had my phone mounted on my bike so I could see the map when I needed too, but it was just too cold. My phone died and I had to warm it up in order to get it to turn back on and finally just gave up and just figure out the best route home. I was getting pretty cold as well at this point, so I saw a McDonalds and decided that it would just have to be my coffee stop. Now, I must confess to being one of those people who doesn't really drink coffee. I mix my coffee in with my soy milk and a variety of sweet flavorings, but since I don't digest milk, and McDonalds doesn't have any alternatives, I just had them put some sugar in my coffee and was happy for the warmth. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I actually liked it. I have heard before that McDonalds makes a good cup of coffee, but hadn't really tested it for myself. I was so grateful for the warmth though, that I may have to try it again and see if it wasn't the circumstances that made it a great cup. I ended up with somewhere over 30 miles, but I'm not completely sure how much since my phone kept shutting off.
