Today we had a little of everything. This morning we started with 33 degrees and full sunshine. It looked like it was going to be a pretty nice day. Then as we got out into the open, flat areas we started feeling the winds (11-29 mph for the day). Still, not a big deal. As we got further into the ride it seemed to get windier and cloudier. Towards the end of the ride we had some frozen precipitation for a few minutes but it was very light. Overall, it was a pretty good day but we had to earn every mile we covered as the winds picked up.
Oh! I forgot that I did something really stupid. Forgot my helmet and had to do the ride without it. I felt so naked (and cold).
