This ride sucked. Not a single mile was enjoyable. Wind always seemed to be in my face, and I could never find a groove.
Worst of all, a lot of the roads I chose were still partially covered in snow/ice/slush from the recent storms. This created a few dicey situations, and, because of where I was, I didn't have any better alternatives nearby.
But it's over. The next 8 months should be enjoyable centuries.
Edit: thought I'd share a picture from the ride.
