it was WINDY today. fought my way "up" the invisible hills on the way out. saw 23mph winds on the weatherbug just before my ride. sometime during they day there was a gust of 36mph. i didn't get in on that...thankfully! temps were in the low 30s.
the way back, of course, was a piece of cake. rode hard and brought my average up from 13.6mph to 15.8mph. i hit my max speed of 36.3mph on a flat northbound section of road. that was super fun! (20.35 miles @ 15.8mph)
