Went riding this weekend on my new bike. The wind was whipping both Saturday and Sunday... I thought I would see Toto floating around there, or at least some flying cows. What's cool is that I never would have gotten half as far as I did on my Mtn Bike... now I can just duck my head down and haul butt. The gearing is great. Its just going to take some time to get used to the thin tires... its much less stable then what I'm used to. What was freaky was when I was riding perpendicular to the direction of the wind... I could hear it howl threw the wheels... In fact it almost blew me over. The wind can definitely be demoralizing. I just keep telling myself... I'm a reed in the wind... neither opposing nor being opposed. Of course reeds get blown every which way and down... which isn't too good. Maybe I need to be something else in the wind? Lets see... a fart in the wind? Yuck. A ghost in the wind? At least the howling was right. I'll have to think on that one.
I'll be competing in the Lake Mills Triathlon in June. I'm also definitely doing the Devil's Challenge again in September. I did that one last year... and want to better my time. I also want to do at least one in between... but I haven't decided which one to do yet.
