A very warm, humid and windy morning today.  Typically I would not have enjoyed riding today, but being I've been forced off the bike since the long weekend with all the usual time and sleep interruptions as well as a couple of days of sinus problems.  And my original intent was to ride north up to the Lake, but with such a strong and gusty south wind, I scrapped that idea.  It's way to open on the north end and the return would have been a real struggle.  Thus I opted for this shorter and more sheltered route.  Apparently that didn't help though.  Slow, but fun.  Well, other than my rear tire was going soft about 10 miles in.  I stopped and inflated it (love the CO2!) before continuing in.  Fortunately it's was either a stem leak or a very small, slow hole I can find later.  Regardless, it beats doing a tire change out on the road.  More moderate weather will be arriving with hurricane rain remnents in the coming days.
