Last year during the Utilitaire Challenge, I rode The Mule on a fiercely windy day to get me a roast beef sandwich called a Gary’s Lunchbox at Sherwood Hall Gourmet. The wind won and I ended up ramming into the back of a parked car.
This year, same conditions, same sandwich, different bike. Little Nellie got the call and handled the wind gusts without incident. I procured my sammich and received a reward, a wonderful tailwind that carried me home with no troubles.
The sammich was most excellent. Lesson learned: when life throws you a headwind, turn around, dummy!
Cumulative miles: good heavens, we must be pushing 75 by now
Remaining errands: 1, but must be done in the dark. Oooh…suspense and intrique await. (Probably not.)
