Sicko can't say no to this weather Gravel Grinder

I was sick and in bed with Asthma and I just kept feeling worse by the minute. Against all logic I buttered up my cameo,took two large bottles and headed out to get the sun to burn off my disease.
I saw them Black Angus cowsies and thought man you look delicious! The wind was ferocious and yes once they cut the corn it makes a huge difference. I rode north on Pleasant Hill road all the way up to Genoa Rd. I had a tail wind all the way up and did not give a shit about the massive headwind that was waiting for me.

The picture with the barn is the way up Pleasant Hill rd. Some hills that I am finding around where I live and yes they make your legs burn. I ended up doing an easy 30 miles and worked up a good soaking sweat. Got home and showered and had some hot tea and lots of water. I must admit that I felt a millions times better than if I would have stayed in bed.

The bike is medicine,
