40 Degrees and WIND....

...that almost makes you go backwards on the trail. Who told me that road biking is supposed to be fun!?!?
Well, it actually made for a good work-out. I went into the wind and did some "sprints", well let's say, I pedaled harder, my heart rate went up, but I didn't go any faster....I got cold toes (no wonder after I saw the wind chill temps on the weather channel) and I had a hard time listening to my IPod, because the wind was howling.

BUT, on the way home, I got rewarded with a tail wind that made me fly:))
What always amazes me is the quietness, when you ride with the wind, it is like all of a sudden, you hit the mute button.

I guess, the good thing about the wind is, that it's drying out the trails for the race on Saturday. Then I can hide between the trees:)

I'm glad you got out. I did for a bit too and boy was it fun to turn towards town and fly with the wind.
