Friday I headed out Bear Creek Rd, down to Marshal and back home via River Rd. The gusting winds, up to 30 mph, were a tough battle most of the way, but once I got on the river, they helped me most of the time. There was snow up on the distant ridges, and the whipping wind was bone chilling. The temps in the sunlit valleys, out of the wind chill, were quite a bit warmer than the temps up on the ridges.
I was feeling good and enjoying riding long again. I was worried a couple of weeks ago, because I had no desire to get out and ride long, despite the warm temps. Today, however, with temps in the low 40's, and added wind chill, I was glad to be out there turning the cranks!!
Friday: 55 miles; 3.5 hrs; winds gusting to 35 mph:
Saturday and Sunday I was too tired from my past 3 days of rides to get any more long rides in. I took the kid for a couple of 1 hr rides each day though. I figure I'm still turning the cranks, still training, and getting quality time!!!
Have a great day!
