 Head Winds
Had a new 11-30 cassette on the shelf so I was back in the hill climbing business for the week. Waited for the rain to stop but that cost me the lighter winds usually found in the earlier parts of the day. Legs still not feeling good yet but had a good climb up Old Odessa. Unfortunately climbed back into a light rain and had to deal with that and a headwind to the Junction. Had a nice steady climb up to Sullivinville and rose into the sunshine. Put some effort into the downgrade into Horseheads and thought I would be able to get the average up to seventeen without too much strain. Counted on getting a tailwind in the slot through Pine Valley but it turned out to be a headwind as the wind shifted. Did do a sprint into Millport but after that it was a slow coast home as the legs were empty. Last five miles was taxing but tried not to push the legs beyond their limit. I had headwinds for the entire course but turned out to be a nice ride once the sun came out.
