Day 15: 30 Days of Biking, Local Miles

Still feeling beat up from yesterday, I went for an easy ride today in light drizzle and high winds for Day 15 of 30 Days of Biking. We're halfway there! I poked through town and headed down to Ocean House Surf for coffee, which is my favorite place in The Swamp to get a latte. They tracked 60 mph wind gusts at the shop yesterday. Killer winds. One of the guys pulled up an app on the iPad and we looked at the current wind track and plotted a route that would give me a little relief from the headwinds on my ride. (Best advice? Avoid the causeway today!) It was a really cool app, which probably comes in handy for surfing! (Nice guys at Ocean House Surf.)

It's a crappy day for weather -- and I only managed 14 easy miles -- but it was good to get out for a ride and reflection. Tough day in New England. Run, bike, be strong today.
