So, I rode into a headwind, crosswind, uphill and down, including a few repeats on this hill. OK, the wind was at my back for part of the ride, but seriously, maybe only 10%! And I made it home with 50 miles in, less than an average day on TdK, but I was home by noon. and speaking of which, when I got home there was no pie, no brownies, no seven-layer bars. No way to run a bike tour.
