The last two 80(+) mile days were easy breezy riding with Roy, Bob and Joe. Today’s 75 miler was a slog; not because of the heat (90(+) degrees), humidity (95%(+)), road surface, terrain or rain, we didn’t have any of those on today’s route. Today was a slog due to the 10-15 mile per hour straight on headwind, with gusts. At no time today could we get into any kind of a rhythm, we just shouldered down and pushed for 75 miles. (The only positive with the headwind was that it did seem to help a bit with the high humidity!)
We began on country roads, went to the highway with good shoulder riding and ended on a long, straight country road with a constant headwind.
The only pictures we took were in the morning, before we had encountered the draining headwinds and at a stop about midway through the slog.
