For the 3rd ride of the 2016 miles in 2016 quest, I was fairly happy with this effort. Despite the wind I managed a decent average speed.
I nearly sacked it off tonight too; it's late, it'll be dark soon and some other excuses came to mind. I simply employed Rule 5 and, to a degree, Rule 9 (can dark country lanes, populated with Sunday drivers, be considered close to bad weather?).
