 Most of the time I try to ride by the rules of the road. I am waiting in line to turn left.

I love the idea of commuting by bike. I am close enough but Florida is too warm and my work does not have facilities.

Wednesday
63° wind 8 ESE
It felt good to get back on my road bike and the cooler weather was welcomed. The wind didn't bother me until I turned around on Wiregrass Ranch Blvd. 
10 miles 13.3 mph

Thursday
Ugh, the wind.
65° wind 10 ESE
The wind didn't bother me until I turned around on WRB. I went from 13.5 mph to 12.4 mph and finished with 12.5. I was in my lowest gear just to keep moving. Dark Sky said it was 4 mph which I know is bullshit. 
10 miles 12.5mph

Friday
67° wind 9 SE
I felt a little stronger today or maybe the wind wasn't as strong. I managed to keep some of my speed as I turned around on WRB. 
10 miles 13.2 mph

27 miles 12 mph
