 Today was another beautiful day, the sky was so blue with lots of sun. This time of year you never know what your going to get. Today was a little chiller than yesterday. I started riding at 8:20am and it was 50 degrees. The high only got to 61 but it felt warm with the sun out all day. The only weather complaint I had was the forecast called for a 6 mph headwind and the headwind was 10 to 12 mph.  

thats not a 6mph headwind

 Yesterday’s ride was 2/3 on bike paths where today’s ride was 1/3 bike paths. I like the bike paths when they are paved because there are fewer turns and you can enjoy the ride more.  

    At 11am I was starting to get hungry so I stopped at a bar and had two beers and a steak sandwich. Tomorrow they say we will have rain so I may need to make more bar stops to keep out of the rain. 

A nice place for a break

    
 This does not smell good. What are they spreading on the fields?
