Today's "easy" ride was spent battling wind gusts in the low 40's....not fun. Up in the canyons, gusts can come from any direction and felt like a sledgehammer to the chest at times. Imagine almost coming to a complete stop while coasting down a 12% grade....not fun. Good thing this is a recovery week! The plus side is that this weeks lower training volume has let me do some dirt jumping. So I headed out to ride at Lory State Park and check out the recent jump re-build. Basically, they combined the dirt from the two larger lines into one even bigger line. Everything is a table and built pretty nicely, I expect I'll be spending some good hours here over the summer.
