    Fly like the wind

    The last 3 days I have really been sailing along on my BMX cruiser. At least until I change direction to ride home into the wind. It's kinda hard pushing into a steady 30 mph wind. Like ya got a flat tire or something... So my rides are only about 8 miles. It sure is fun to ride in January in Northern Illinois. I think I am hooked on single speed. It's raw. Facing the elements head on alone kinda thing.

    Hmmm. Wonder where I'd end up if I only rode with the wind. Nah, probably just a big circle.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    Riding into the wind is easy- Just drop down a gear or two and---- Oh Dear.

    But what a circle! All the way around the world.

    You might want to use one of these for the wet parts.
