I was feelin' lazy today and we had wicked south winds (15+ continuous) so I got the little lady to meet me with the truck in a little town about 19 miles to the North and rode a strong tailwind. Yep, it's cheating, but it was incredibly fun riding 20+ for 90% of the way. If I had to do an out and back, I may not have bothered. I hate going 10 mph.
I got the bent and my fat butt up to 36 mph for about a 1/4 mile on a downhill and a subsequent valley... A bit scary.
