willya turn off the freaking wind machine already???

I am so over this. Every day this week, no matter what direction I've needed to ride in, it's been a howling headwind. Including yesterday, you'd think I'd cut a break? no. I gotta ride from Gunbarrel to East Boulder Rec. for a city council meeting and I gotta howling 25mph SOUTH wind. we NEVER get south wind here. until I gotta ride south, that is... then earlier when I gotta ride from Valmont up to North Boulder, whaddya know, it's howling out of the northwest. I can't win.

88 inch gear +
37 year old legs +
25mph headwind (with higher gusts) x
2-3% uphill grade =

did a super hard ride yesterday when conditions were optimum so I'm just using the cruiser ride as a recovery today.

// FWIW supposed to be windy again tomorrow.

I had a tail wind both directions yesterday. It was nice for a change.
