20180106 bike summary.PNG

This was the worst week for riding. It was very busy at work and cold weather moved in. I missed three days because of weather and, afterwards, I was too tired and too cold to ride more than 30 minutes. I had a three day weekend but I was too exhausted to do much. I should probably be happy that I rode as much as I did. 

Monday
59° humidity 88% wind 4 NW
I saw the rain forecast and forgot to check out the wind direction. I went my usual route and was hampered by wind and rain. My wool shirt kept me comfortable. 
8.53 miles
12.26 mph

Too cold to ride. 

Friday
53° humidity 27% wind 7 NNE
I had intended on a long ride but the conflicting wind reports (Carrot Weather said a NW wind, WeatherNerd said NNE) and a tired made me stick to a short ride. The wind was strong and went through my sweatshirt. I need to invest in a wind proof vest. The sun felt good but not enough to make me ride harder or longer. 
6.29 miles

Saturday
It was too cold in the morning and I was lazy and waited until late afternoon. 
56° humidity 35% wind 3-8 NNE
I wore my shorts and it was chilly. The sun did not help. I only did a short ride.

Sunday
Too cold this morning. I waited for the temperature to rise. 
66° humidity 49% wind 6-11 E
I blew my nose too hard and it started bleeding. I didn’t stop but got my rag and kept going. The wind was strong but I felt OK except for the nose bleed.
