Thursday I was done with work early with plans to ride. While it was sunny the temps sat around 20 and the wind was a solid 15 mph out of the NW. I took the River Road up to Little Falls. This road usually protects you from the wind but on this ride it still seemed quite windy. At Little Falls I headed west on Hwy 27 till I came upon a gravel road. I tried to take gravel roads most of the way home. I zigged and zagged trying to stay on gravel! I did pretty well till St. Stephen area where most of the gravel ends.
I ended with 5.5 hours and 87 miles...nothing fast but riding.
Not sure on evening plans here. If it allows I hope to get an hour spin in. Saturday and Sunday are warmer days and free so the plan is to get solid rides in both days. Can't wait!
