This wind is ruining my riding
33mph with 42mph gusts right now.

Woke up and got ready to ride but my parents didn't let me. Hopefully the wind will ease off by tomorrow.

I rode up to Rainbow yesterday and the wind picked up on the last little hill in Rice Cyn. It sucked until I realized I'd be turning around in a mile and a half. 40 mile ride home with tailwind = good.

We'll be on SART today. One thing I enjoy is riding in the wind. Good thing about the wind is that most riders stay in and we have plenty of elbow room.

The road would be different having to worry about motorists but the trail is fun when it's blowing.

Supposed to be 80 high today, can't miss this Ca winter weather.

Then I prefer to stay squishy. Guess I'll spend this weekend watching Breaking Bad.

LOL, I liked the first few seasons of the show but the characters changed too much several seasons in for me to continue to watch.
