We have had a cool and windy spring here in Western NY State. Rain too, but the cold and wind predominate. I'm well behind my goals for the season to date simply because the riding has been so unpleasant.
While I'd rather have lounged on the couch today, I had no choice but to go out for a metric century, because I was signed-up as the ride leader for the club's Ten Parks Tour ride, which goes through ten city, town and county parks and combines urban, suburban and rural riding.
Of 500 club members, only a dozen started, probably because it was 43°F at the start, and west winds were blowing relentlessly in the 20s and gusting to the 30s.
Anyway, here's a shot of yrs trly in a baselayer, jersey and jacket on top, windfront gloves, windfront tights and booties (Booties!) on a sunny May 31st afternoon. Taken at our bonus 11th park, the Lower Falls Park down in the Genesee River gorge, about 55 miles into the ride.
Yes, it was windy down there too. Look at the spray on the railing.
