Wind storm of 2010
Needless to say yesterday was incredible. I decided to ride to confront the winds that were howling out of the S.W. We had sustained winds of over 35 with gusts of around 60mph. That categorized yesterday as a Cat 3 hurricane day. So I was out on the crossbike riding to work and turning the pedals with all my might to sustain a 3-6 mph speed. I had a couple of scary moments and also an unwanted trip to the ditch. On the way home I rode the PUgsley with the 26x2.5 hookworm and I was doing 30mph without any effort. I am happy to have ridden.
