Ride Report: 03.21.11

Took a hilly ride around Pinchot last night at dusk.  The evening got really nice, but once the sun went down, the temperature dropped 10 degrees. 

I determined that the Cyo lamp illuminates the road enough to blast down hills at 35 mph, but I still was pretty nervous about going that fast after dark and ended up riding the brakes in parts.  The other aspect is that when travelling at that speed, the wind plays tricks with your ears – I could have sworn it sounded like my front wheel was ready to fall off, but once I got to level pavement, all was well.  Darkness and wind…bad combination for fast descents and mind games.

Distance: 16.8 miles  2011: 112.8
