The Crosswind

Just as I finished complaining about the ridiculous April headwinds, the leaders of tonight's ride decided to head mainly East in a strong southerly wind. Spending part of the time on the correct side of the double echelon helped a little, but the rest was pretty brutal. Well April is over, and I can only assume the wind will die down tomorrow. Right?

Speaking of the end of April, I just did a quick tally and my ride mileage was just shy of 600 for the month (down from 831 miles in April 2006). I wonder how much of this I can blame on the horrible winter we've had...

Here's what I've been doing this year.

Hey Rob,
Oh my God! Congratulations on all your dedication through headwinds, crosswinds and tailwinds, west winds, WHEW!

One Question: does your list refer to each of your bicycles? Are those the names of your bicycles?

Did you make a graph, Rob?
