Decided to pedal up A1A on a glorious cloudy 80-degree morning. Didn't expect the life-sapping high winds though. Fucking gusts kept catching my wheel and trying to push me into traffic

I hate wind when I'm riding. Yeah, sure, tailwinds are fun, but I'd much rather have a calm day so I can ride in any direction without fighting wind.

12 miles today in between thunderstorms. City residential streets and bike trail. Nice autumn afternoon.

No riding today as busy cleaning the house.
Yesterday went riding in good weather in between showers to look for an open fuel station which I eventually found with a fuel tanker delivery at my usual station. So rushed back home and got the car to there before it started filling more with cars and after about 35 minutes was at the pump with no fuel restrictions.

Yikes, still a mess over there with that nonsense, eh? That's rough.

By the time I've used my replenished tank the situation should be resolved

Spent yesterday afternoon trying to pedal around rain clouds. You can actually do that in South Florida because at times they're small and raining directly on small areas so you can have rain on one street and a few streets down be totally dry.

Refuel stop by a canal:

Had a few days like that here this summer. Weird pop-up showers that rain in one place while it's sunny all around.

16 miles out-back ride on a regional trail. It will probably be my standard ride unless I find something better. Getting to the regional trail requires crossing some busy roads (pedestrian signal). If I can find a route that avoids these crossings it will be an improvement.

Nice autumn morning.

Nice autumn morning.
Same here. Our trail that I ride most days is only 2 miles from my house, but it means crossing a nasty main artery with no traffic lights. Waiting for a gap in traffic from both sides is a pain, as is clipping in and out. So I drive up to the trail with the bike on the rack and then ride. Trying to cross that road just isn't worth the risk or the hassle.

I was in Everyready Bunny mode today. I was going to do 15-20 miles, but felt good after 20, so I kept going.

curious...How many miles YTD have you guys done? My goal in January was 2000. I'm at 1550 now. Hopefully, I can get there.
