    Ice is almost gone off the lake I ride on, so Im hoping to be out by the 14th of April. Cold water really doesn't bother me, I just hope we don't get the lovely north winds that tear the lake to shreds in the spring. 3~5 footers make it kind of hard to make sure everything is ok and get any testing in.

    Wow, i can't believe you guys are talking about riding with ice in the water and the water temperature getting up to 50! I ride at the Colorado river about 20 mi. south of Lake Havasu. I would guess the water temp is low to mid 60's right now, but gets to the low 80's by mid summer. Air temp is supposed to be about 90 this weekend. NICE! First trip will be Easter weekend. YA Hoo.......
