    45 miles on Sunday morning, trying to beat the rain that was scheduled for the afternoon. It was warmer than yesterday, but I still felt chilled for most of the ride. Too windy too.

    23 miles mostly on hills in the tremendous wind. I about got blown off the bike a couple of times on the fast downhill sections. Less wind today, but it's 24 degrees out. What the heck?
