nice ride

Had a nice ride home yesterday. Had winds of 25 - 35 mph, usually from behind.

Usually, a tailwind seems more like a dead calm to me. But yesterday, it felt as though one gust was pushing me up the hill! Also, I had some comments by pedestrians, "Tight bike," and "You got the right idea," stuff like that. I guess no matter how much I get used to riding a bent, there are people who are still amazed at that strange machine and it's belly-up rider...

/end ramble

Have a great weekend!

No worries

I heard somewhere there are no tailwinds; you either battled a fierce headwind, or you had a good day.
