I'm willing to pray to anyone that next Saturday bears no resemblance to today in the wind department. I rode the 1st half of the Day One route, due frickin' South. I was so happy when my wife called to tell me the weather was supposed to be coming in sooner so I had a legitimate reason to turn around. I wound up getting in about 60 miles, but it hurt like 100.
Knee doesn't like weather changes either, go figger.
