This morning I had a nice leisurely ride on a country road that started to remind me of the ones I rode through the Midwest years ago. The road hazards were big farm tractors. And I made it back into the land of the huge round hay bales. The winds were there, but only at 8.5 mph., so doable.
It was 50 miles of pleasantness. Then the afternoon hit, as did the winds! They gradually increased over the next several hours. and always a direct headwind, until they hit a sustained 18.5 mph. for the last two hours of riding. Ugh! Enough already!
This is what that looks/sounds like:
So I figure, if I say “I love the wind!” maybe my test will be done! 🙂
