FCUKing wind. Nothing more to say.
On the other hand, the people I met at my destination were worth the struggle.
Thanks to my birthday twin Marian, I met her cousin Aggie and her husband John. I spent a very nice time swimming with John and later having a roasted pig for a dinner with a bunch of their friends to celebrate the 4th of July.
There were a few Americans, some like me (naturalized) and some like John (born there). We agreed to disagree on a few issues concerning the war in Iraq, the situation in Libya, our current president and the next one. However, it ended up peacefully over the desert.
Today in numbers:
81 km – distance covered
4h46m – riding time
0 – fun while riding
