Yesterday I met up with Onyx Jim and headed South, into the wind. Damn it was windy. Plus the gravel is getting pretty soft. No rain, farm traffic, and/or freshly laid gravel. All this made for some slow speeds at time. I was on the Cutthroat, which was the right choice for this gravel.
Around two hours in Jim had to cut for home and work. I pushed on to Darwin. I stayed to the East of Darwin so I could come at if form the South and continue on home.
Love this bridge.
Trip #4 of the year to the big ball.
I topped off my fluids at the gas station in Darwin and was on my way home with the tailwind. I needed to be home 2:30-3:00 to have enough time to get Harper form school and to gymnastics by 4:00. I had some time so instead of heading straight home I took some runs to the West before committing to a homeward route.
Rain is predicted this morning, right around the time I hoped to ride. I have to bike to work today as well so I may be getting wet.
Sounds like I have another trip to Darwin planned for tomorrow?! Love me some South winds!
