In one bike day - mowed briar patch where sunscreen goes, graduated to big ring after suffering thru one month of forced hi cadence, man can I fly. Got chased by a really BIG bad dog - no intentions of chase or play - just wanted a piece of my leg. Found a couple of new long roads with no CHIP SEAL. Twenty some miles on a road far from home finally realized speed due to tail wind - not my improved body. Coke and Payday candy bar - great half way break. Anyhow the temp was almost perfect, the sun warm and traffic almost nonexistant. Will spring ever come without the wind?
