    About 12-14 MPH into the wind. I wasn't pushing real hard though. I was just lazing along.

    Yes, it was warm here in Indiana today… We don’t get many of these kind of days in January. The wind and the fact that I had about 200 other things to do kept me from riding… but I sure thought about it anyway.

    If I was just lazing along in a headwind like that, I'd be going backwards.

    way to go Tom. I havent followed the list closely lately but is this after the surgery? i rode 20 mils today in 70 F weather (readum and weep) but had the same windy conditions. well 10 mph with gust of 20 or so. I hit 27 mph on one flat section with a good tailwind. held that pace about a mile. of cours on the return i was struggling to maintain 12 mph. over the whole ride i averaged 11.9 mph. I want to try a flat ride soon and see if my average goes up.
