I wanted to get out before the heat set in today, but was just a little apprehensive regarding the wind. Wind was in the forecast, but when I went outside, it just didn't seem that bad? Not sure of where I wanted to ride, but wanted to get in at least 30 miles, I headed for the Interurban Rd. at the last minute, due to it being close.
It didn't seem quite so hot and there was a slight breeze making it very comfortable. Since the Interurban Rd. can be quite boring at times, I decided to pass the time by identifying birds, but the only one I recognized was the one a guy gave me from his car. I think he was a Redheaded, barrel chested, tally whacker!
At any rate, I decided to cut the ride to 24 miles for some reason. I think I was just tired from not getting enough sleep last night. I'm sure glad I did! When I headed back, it was right into the wind and it was brutal! I usually don't mind working into the wind, but this was a strong cross wind that make it just a little scary when cars passed.
Ended up with 24 miles at 12.4 mph topping out at 24.3 mph, obviously downhill.
Setting on 104 miles for the week so far.
