2006-03-14 Bike

Afternoon ride with Gerrit, Mike, and Tex. Did an out-back to the country club west of us, just north of 81. The wind was insane. Motionbased.com says the average wind was 21.9mph (they correlate GPS data with a 3rd party weather source.) I don't doubt it. My guess was 20mph with gusts to 40mph. The good news was that the wind was directly in our faces on the way out... so we were rewarded with a nice tailwind on the way back. Nothing like coasting along at 30mph and hearing only the sound of your tires :-).

I ordered a new rear cassette (which should arrive tomorrow), so hopefully there will be no more need for me to bitch about the gearing on J.
