An afternoon ride on the W&OD and Mt. Vernon trails. The outbound leg and the last 6 miles of the return leg featured a fierce headwind that averaged between 10 and 20 mph, slowing the pace quite a bit. Of course, that also meant having a nice tailwind for a 15 mile stretch, so it’s all even in the end, right? The sun was nice, and I fit into my smallest (or trimmest) jersey again – hooray!
