I took the road bike out at 9:00 in the morning, and headed up to Tijeras to get the mail. I pushed the pace a little bit, because I wanted to build on the progress that I started, with yesterday's ride. I made it up to the mailboxes in less than two hours, which is respectable.

For the first time in a long time, there was no snow up there. There was a little bit of ice in the shade where the snowplows had piled it up, but it was inconsequential. It was a bit cool up there, as usual, so I put my windbreaker on for the ride down the mountain.

I was smart to get an early start on this ride, because the winds had really picked up by the time I headed down the highway. It was especially windy as I made the turn into Tijeras Canyon, and headed back to Albuquerque. I was very relieved when I finally made it back to Tramway, and headed up the road, back to the house.

It was a pretty nice day with some high clouds, and temps in the 60s.
