Trial ride #2
I have been playing around with the idea of commuting to work for quite a while now. Start with one day a week, and see what happens. I did a trial run today, and it took an hour and ten minutes. That’s five minutes more than my first attempt. Might have been the wind; Weather Underground states it was suppose to reach 7mph during the time I was out riding. I just checked AccuWeather, and they list wind gusts up to 28mph. Some of those headwinds felt like they were pushing at more than 7mph that’s for sure.
Here’s a question for everyone: what sources do you use to figure out the weather for your rides? Local news, internet weather sites, an old soccer injury? Please post your answers in the comments section.
Distance: 27.5 miles
