Wind. Windy. Perfect day for a ride. Again, wind.
That sums up the ride this morning. After getting some errands done, I hauled out the Bianchi, aired up the tires and took out east of town. I pretty much followed a previous route, but with a few additions. Every once in a while I turned down a Farm Road just to see where it went. This gave me more knowledge of FR’s 148, 199 [south of Sunshine], and 207. I also found a way to ride around the climb starting west on FR 138 [Cherry] and Wagner Rd. I was pleased with the condition of the roads, e.g., no pot holes, gravel or grit left over from our recent snow, and there was minimal snow melt that makes for a wet ride. Also, there was not much traffic to deal with. With a breeze one can figure on a headwind or tailwind. But today, it seemed like Headwind Most Of The Way. Sometimes My Speed+Headwind>50 mph. But that was OK. This is why I ride, to enjoy the outdoors, no matter the conditions. This was a promise of good rides to come; my wife and I are blessed to live in the Ozarks with such a variety of riding terrain.
