It was a great workout today spending 90% of my ride getting beat by the wind. Only did 25 miles but it felt like a lot more by rides end, and the leg's were butter at the time I was done. Thank goodness I switch out my rims the day before. Put on the Coles low profile rims and put the Reynolds 81's away for the season.

Nice day to cheat some Strava segments and also set personal slows.
OT, I thinking of taking a ride up north up 202 once I get to 122 is there a good cycling route up to NH that you know of?

Ended with my slowest ride of the season.

I like to take rte. 12 into Keene, NH, I also like rte. 202 into Peterborough, NH. and take 101 to Mason or to Keene. Lots of good rolling terrain.

i love being in the drops, riding slightly uphill on a beautiful and winding road, soaking it up, pedaling in a big gear into a breeze. that is the very best.

what feels worst is being out in the open, punished about the head and body in a heavy wind. no, no. i did my time in oklahoma when i was young.

I had the same experience Saturday the 22nd in MI. Huge effort back home into a wind. It was a challenge.
The difference of being low: I rode in the same headwind and enjoyed it. I had to do my own pace, though; out in front of the group. The wind really punished them.
