this morning i encountered the first strong winds i've had to face in several weeks. early in the day, it's been extremely calm for kansas. today the calm ended.
i pushed against the wind on the way out to mayfield road, averaging somewhere under 16mph. i just couldn't get much speed, so i just pedaled in rhythm and enjoyed the ride.
i turned around at the 12-mile mark and headed back. what took me 45'11" going out took 38'22" coming back. like i said, the wind was pretty strong.
nothing much to report other than that. there was new roadkill on the way out. an armadillo, i think. didn't take a really close look. just went around it and kept going. (24.01 miles @ 17.2mph)
