Simply a perfect morning

Today presented a perfect morning. Air temp slightly cool, sunshine with only a few wisps of clouds overhead. STRONG tailwind, and a 16 mile commute on the road bike. The glory days popped up in my head and averaged 18mph through town. Stop lights slowed me down along with a stretch of really bad road. Could have averaged another 1 or 2 mph if not for that. I had fun!

A beginning with an end we often dream of and cherish after experiencing it. Yesterday you were the windshield , I on the other hand was the bug.

Hoping for many more to follow.

Without a doubt, some days being in the saddle beats "stopping to smell the roses" hands down.

Pretty nice here too. My commuting bike has some desperately needed maintenance and repair, so I'm taking my backup road bike instead ... something I don't usually do, because riding on the beach chews bikes up pretty good.

So much smoother of a ride and the weather was cool and beachy. Sooo lucky for my commute.
