Before heading out today, I consulted the weather wane.
After having a rough ride of it yesterday, I made sure I knew which way the wind was blowing today. Before I headed out I consulted every weather web site I could find and they all agreed that the wind was blowing from the NE.
With this information at hand, I adjusted my laps around the McAlpine accordingly. I was exposed on the main trail with a comfortable tailwind, and hid amongst the trees on the inner trails where I encountered minimal headwinds.
The weekend approaches, time to up the miles and pick up the speed. The bicycle bell is going to get a workout.
MTB: distance 21.90 miles, average speed 14.3 mph.
