Another complaint about the weather is coming. The plan was to ride outside. The plan included riding at 7am to get done before the rain and storms hit. The plan also included riding with friends. The plan did NOT include 20 mph winds gusting to 35 mph. Flipper, Candy, and I battled the elements for 1:15. We saw many others out there facing the same challenge. Another rider tole me that the wind was Chicago's way of making up for the lack of hills.

This afternoon, I made a trip to Performance Bicycle for a pair of riding gloves. I found an awesome saddle on clearance. Woohoo! I love a bargain. I hope that I love the saddle as much as the price.

Waddling to get ready for Sunday's run....

I like the quote about wind... very appropriate.

Yeah, very windy today. And even hot here.

Enjoy your run tomorrow!

I would have been in bed rather than in those conditions. Nice job!

Sorry...I didn't make it to the ride. You guys must have had a tough time on the bike cutting through that wind. Wow! Remember, hills and wind only make you stronger. Good job, Waddler.
