100km today - what a killer!

100km today - what a killer!

Strong Easterly wind today which had the effect of causing a constant streaming nose (and I always say that I don't have Hay Fever!) Left the house at 6.15am and it was a chilly 12 C. Given my ride is essentially a South - North ride then the Easterly's do me no favours at all! (Except the stretch from Swan Bells - City Beach.)

Average speed was 25.5km/h, down from last week but some of those Easterly's were 60km/h! (My wife sent me an SMS to tell me that, obviously it gave her great satisfaction! :roll: )

Cheers,

Gary

I thought that wind had some nip to it today. 12 deg and up to 60km/h? No wonder it took a while to warm up at 6.00 this morning! I had to push into it for about 35 minutes of my hour long trip and regretted not putting the leg warmers in.

Cheers,
Graeme

Well done Gary.

Was out your way to day too ... in the car but :) We drove out to Burns Beach.
