#30daysofbiking Day 25: windy

... after the storm, field in bloom

It was a dark and stormy night …. (I have always wanted to write that).  Lots of nasty weather last night, but woke up this morning to sun and some pretty strong winds gusts.    Lots of green.  (And yellow – up in the field).

Spent the day doing house stuff.  Actually, Mark did more of the “work” part than I did (no surprise there).  We had both considered taking a nice long road ride, but the wind was so crazy we decided to hold off until later in the afternoon.  Finally got out, but it was some tough going.  Riding against a gusting headwind is even more difficult for me than a long climb (but I am not such a serious cyclist to begin with;)).  A few times crosswind gusts felt like they were going to blow my bike right out from underneath me.  On the flip side, a change in direction (tailwind), made it feel like I was flying.  Definitely the fun part!

can you tell local elections are right around the corner?

"sharing the road"

Spent a little time playing with my camera around the yard and up in the field.  More “other” pics than bike pics today. Still kind of hard to believe that we’ve reached Day 25 of the 30…  And that’s all I have. 😛

little blue butterfly up in the field - can never figure out how they can navigate on windy days like today?
