It was below freezing this morning in Central Park, with a real feel of freakin' cold. The CRCA had a bike race scheduled, though; the first of 2014. So, predictably, bike racers showed up before dawn, pinned some fancy new cloth numbers, and rolled off the line right around sunrise. It wasn't exactly a huge turnout. Many slept in, or-- who knows?-- maybe were headed out of town for some winter sports. Skiing, snowshoeing. Ice climbing.
