This was a good week for riding. The wind was annoying but I pushed through. I ended the year above my goal of 3000 miles even with missing most of August. I increased my weekly minimum mileage to 60 miles.
75° humidity 72% wind 11-16 SE
The damn wind was back. I pushed through some of it. I wanted a decent ride for the last one of the year. I heard and saw more martins along Oldwoods but didn't stop.
This month 410 miles
This year 3706 miles
80° humidity 63% wind 7-8 SW
Too warm, too breezy. I rode to BBD then to New Tampa Blvd and over I75. Coming back was nice. Not too much traffic and ai made most of the lights.
81° humidity 50% wind 3-5 S
Late start. I forgot my water and wore my sunglasses which were only needed for the first 5 miles. I had to take them off for the last five miles as it was too dark with them on. And the gnats!
75° humidity 82% wind 6-7 S
I went out to BBD and across the overpass. I found the way to Lizards Tail.
The way back was easy and I made the lights. My legs were ready to quit after 15 miles.
71° humidity 94% wind 10-14 S
Already too windy and only going to worse as the day goes on. I am glad I didn't wait any longer.
Saw a Maserati parked at the dead end on MPB. Stolen?
64° humidity 67% wind 12-18 NW
Too damn windy and cloudy. I pushed my way up through Seven Oaks and back down through Wiregrass. I only stopped a few seconds at the lights and once to rest.
It was not a fun ride.
71° humidity 37% wind 5 N/NE
Beautiful day and I wanted to stay in bed. My body was tired from drinking last night so I did a slow, recovery ride.
This week 109.5
This year 78
