Two Windy Sucky Days

It finally hits 60's and 70's and what does that mean in South Dakota? Winds 25-45 mph. I've still commuted, but that's it. Upon the request of my youngest, I picked him up from daycare yesterday and battled the 35-45 mph winds on the way home pulling him along. A trip to the grocery story with the Grocery Getter proved equally as brutal.

Today it was less windy (a mere 25mph or so) and I toyed with getting a ride in, but I had a run in with a different type of issue today. My backside and the porcelain god became unfortunate good friends and my stomach was in an uproar. You get the picture and I need not expound more.

Tomorrow CDV and I are riding no matter what. Either a road ride or as Team Man Tandem. Either way, it has to be done. Then Friday I'll be leaving for the LBL ride. With very few rides under my belt and nothing over 35, this could be interesting. This ride will still be a classic and new friends will be made.

Hmmm, I think I recall someone giving me a hard time for complaining about the wind. I wonder who that was.

Probably not me, I whine about the wind quite often. The good thing is it's so darn windy no one can hear me!!
Bwah ha ha ha!!
The Mayor is going to Sioux City first thing this morning for a procedure that shouldn't take more than 1.5 hours. Upon arriving back in SooFoo, he will take the rest of the day off and get some miles on the new bent! Winds 5-15 mph!
Yee ha! Enjoy your ride guys.

CDV...twasn't necessarily the wind that stopped me last night. It was the fear unpleasant happening during the ride.

I almost went out for a ride last night. I just couldn't bring myself to deal with the gentle breeze. I did get some trainer miles in. Have fun this weekend!

Remember how the MS ride was last year? I mean the MS sprint? Well, LBL is very likely to be the complete opposite of that. No worries, lots 'o stops. Beer.
