I’m with my lover. lit up paradise drive again, today. took it easy out of the city, there was lots of crosswind which made the front wheel feel like a sail. definitely should’ve put on the aluminum rims today, at least in the front. but after getting off the bike path, and climbing camino alto, the wind wasn’t noticeable at all. looking at a map, the reason becomes obvious. paradise drive heads in a westward direction, with the wind. also, the road is lined against a windy mountain (-ish?) covered in trees which break up the wind quite well.
taking a much needed rest day tomorrow. happy memorial day.
