Nice ride northbound with a mild to moderate tail wind.  A tough section westbound and then a long easy stretch east along the lake.  And then it was time to pay the piper as the winds just got steadily stronger as I headed back south.  A brutal slog by the end highlighted by BOOM! my patched up front tire blowing out at the 60 mile mark and then going flat again 3 miles later.  This was followed by a gradually increasing "thump" that felt like it was in the back, but I didn't know why until I got home.  My rear tire is also developing a bulge and is destined to eventually blow out.  Time for new, hopefully discounted replacements after just 360 miles.  Continental Ultra Sports...worst tires ever!
