It is great to still be biking in October. What a chilly but pretty day. Today was our coldest day starting at 45 degrees but warming up to about 60 degrees. I had the right cloths so the colder weather was fine. I had a 10 mph headwind for the first half of the day but then I turned to the east and that headwind turned to a cross wind that finally got my average speed above 15 mph.
I rode along Rte 35 and Rte 2 for most of the day. These were highways with large shoulders. I miss the smaller rural roads from a few days ago. Some of today’s ride was right along the lake which made for gorgeous views.
