Punchin' Holes In The Wind

Took off northbound with the wind at my back today. Oh what fun! The speed rawked! I tried to pace myself. I knew the upwind ride would be tough. I couldn't do it. The speed was too addicting!

I hauled the mail up north, then turned around. With gusts over 31-mph the southbound run was as tough as I thought. I pushed through at a good climbing pace. It was difficult! The extra workload felt good for the legs.

On the way home, the wind was at a perfect angle for drafting a Metro bus down Heights...a nice respite from the wind, but the fumes weren't so good!

Oh, and Cornershop's When I was Born the Seventh Time is another great album to ride to. Thanks for the suggestion Liz!
