Temps In The 50's And So Was the Wind

The wind was not quite that bad but the whole ride was akin to climbing a mountain. There were a few spots where we were cruising in the high teens and almost immediately dropped to under 10mph when the gust hit.   I was spent when we got home, but then again I'm very much out of shape.  Unless one considers round a shape.  I'm working on it though thanks to fellow bike blogger Tex in Louisville who recommended Gary Taubes book on weight management.   It works I'm down 7 in one week.
After todays root canal (don't ask), We set out on one of the popular routes through the back roads of SouthCoast MA. 20 miles today at a decent clip considering the resistance imposed by mother nature.

A Midnight Rider.  Not to be confused with A Fat Cyclist.  Then again....

No helmet, ear phones, no hands.   The Advocacy and Safety group over at Bike Forums would have a field day with this one.

Bikes are back in the stable after the ride.
