After all of the nice weather of late, today was a bit disappointing as it was a bit cool and I probably should have worn tights.  And much like last weekend, it was another tough battle against a relentless headwind.

This ride took me back to the steel deck bridge on Foot Rd which I have not been on in many years.  It was back in 1996 or 1997 that I rode across this bridge early one morning as I had previous times, but this morning there was dew on the bridge.  Wet steel and bicycles are a deadly combination as I near found out that day when I almost crashed on it.  After this very scary event I vowed I would never ride a steel deck bridge again.  Thus as I have since, I stopped and walked across it.  It's just not worth it.
