Today’s ride was 60 miles with the first part quite hilly and the second part flat. For the first 20 miles of the ride it was raining, which gave me the opportunity to test my new rain jacket. The jacket is definitely an improvement over my previous jackets, that said, it’s still not pleasant to ride in such conditions (especially since my glasses fog up and i don’t see where i am going). I felt generally tired and weak throughout the ride, possibly because of the moderate wind. Despite that, I averaged 17mph which given the weather conditions and the lumpy first part is quite ok.
