Wind, Wind and more Wind!

Today I cut my ride a little short as I had things to take care of. The winds were very strong and I had a little bit of a time maintaining my speed.

Great day for a ride even with the strong head winds.

I rode my usual route through the streets, hope soon to know my way around the local country roads.

Great ride on a windy day.

Rode my local route today, with just a few windy spots. I did figure out why I couldn't get up to my speeds of last season. The reason is all these roads here are chipseal.

Great ride on a nice day.

I rode for the first time in a long while do to poor weather, and it was nice getting out. The wind was strong as it usually is around here but I didn't care. I ordered a Garmin Vivoifit watch for my walking.

Nice ride but strong wind

When I moved from South Brunswick, I thought that the winds here in Monroe Township would be a little lighter, but am I very much surprised at how strong the winds here are! So far the lightest winds I have encountered on a ride was 11 mph which is far greater than my old route. Oh well I just have to work that much harder to maintain my speed. I truly need the workout. My back pain is so much less when I ride than when I lay off for a while.

Beautiful day for a ride but very windy

Today was a beautiful day for a ride even with the strong winds. I rode over 10 miles so I feel good about my progress. Between my one or two walks of 1.88 miles each walk I feel I am getting a fair workout.

Short but nice ride, lots of wind.

Today was a catch up ride, as I haven't rode in a while do to bad weather and baby sitting. I feel like I go to feet forward and 6 feet back this riding season has not started off to well.
