 Wall of Wind
Had tired legs this morning and thought about taking the day off because of the wind, but since it will be raining or snowing for the rest of March thought it best to man up and head out on a short ride. Spring is finally here as attested by the peepers and phoebes I heard for the first time today. Climbed mostly into the wind except for a crosswind near the bottom and struggled to keep my speed over five miles an hour when the wind was gusting. Took a good deal of time to get through the six mile climb. Tried to push the hill but with tired legs it only stressed my back muscles. Ended up slugging through it though only to have another six miles of headwind on the downhill. I was able to work and keep the speed mostly above ten miles and hour. Last few miles was blistering tailwind and the speed would occasionally slip into the low thirties, but legs were to tired to put anything together. Not a very good ride for a day when the temperatures were well into the fifties. Good kite flying weather though.
