    I'm really getting tired of the wind right now especially with all the pollen in the air. For one thing i just can't go out and do a nice easy enjoyable ride, the wind makes you push all the time. Thinking I'm doing an easy Zwift ride this morning after looking at the forecast for today. After the 70's and 80's the past few days 60's* and 14-25 winds just doesn't sound appealing right now,

    Yesterdays ride. I'm not sure how accurate these are but when small trees and bending, that's not a 5-8 mph breeze.

    Better come for a visit. It's been beautiful all week and should last until late Saturday or Sunday.
    I'll be expecting you Friday morning.

    Are you guys still getting WindSock reports from your Strava rides? I used to get them all the time but then they suddenly quit and I haven't seen one in over a year.
