Caught a Window

There were a couple of hours this afternoon without rain - something we haven't seen in a while. I was able to get out on the bike and log some miles.

However, before I started, I had to reattach my rear wheel after getting the wobble fixed. (Two spokes this time.) While watching the pro racers on OLN, I see them change a wheel in about 10 seconds. I can get the thing off OK, but getting it back in place with the chain where it needs to be takes me several tries and around five minutes. I'll keep practicing. I also had to adjust the screw that holds one of the magnets for the Reelight.

Anyways ... I went west on Division Road, north on 400W, east on 450N, north on Taft Road, east on Morehouse Road, south on 250W, west on US52, south on Klondike Road, east on SR26, south on Sharon Chapel Road, and west on Newman Road back to Division Road and home.

Because of the low pressure system wobbling around Indiana and Michigan, the wind was unpredictable. I caught a headwind heading north, a tailwind heading south, a headwind heading south, and another headwind heading east.

I'm a believer that the low pressure has nothing to do with it.

Wind, in an of itself, is evil and will shift directions to oppose you for it's sheer sick amusement.

Agreed with Buddaq! ::GRIN:: The evil headwing gnomes always give me the gift of eternal hill training with a headwind. Better not say that too loud or they might give me eternal tail winds and make me weaker! By the way, interested in a Double Century? One other thing, weaqr Yellow Wednesday for Livestrong Day. Details at both of my blogs!
