Gloom! dispare! agony! It has been raining and windy since Friday so I haven't been able to get outside since my Fifty Friday. Looks like this years cross country group are running into a little heat in north Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. Looks like they have avoided all the rain. Good luck and ride safe.

Following Jan's blog for this years cross country group. First week was hot, hilly, headwinds. After their rest in Flagstaff was a day with a 20 mph tailwind. How lucky. Lets hope their luck holds. Looking forward to meeting them in Champaign on June 11.

Livin the dream 55 mile ride today. Finished in two hours and forty five minutes. averaged 20 mph. Now before one thinks I was doing Lance Armstrong type PED's I must admit I had a 15-20 gusting to 25 mph tailwind. My bike snob friends mock and hassle me for not turning around and riding back into the wind. I have to remind them of the Delhart ride which made today look like a summer breeze. Been there and one that. So a long ride of 50 plus miles with the wind at my back is a nice way to spend a beautiful afternoon. I make no apologies!
