Don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

10 to 20 mph headwinds until late this afternoon made for a chilly ride. On relatively flat country, I could only ride about 6 to 8 mph. It made for a long day. And on top of that, my GPS and I had a disagreement and I rode an extra 10 miles or so. Tomorrow the winds are WSW which is more of a sideways tail wind, so it should be better. Most of today’s ride was on I-10, so not a lot of photo opportunities. I did cross the continental divide! Here’s the map from today and some pictures.
