I didn't get an early start on this ride, leaving the house around noon. I rode down Tramway, and even made through most of the red lights.
I rode through Tijeras Canyon, and then made the turn up S337, only to faced with a pretty strong headwind. The headwind stayed with me until about halfway up the mountain, where it turned around and changed into a tailwind. Very nice.
I made it up to Raven Rd., and made my stop to pick up the mail. I chowed down on a power bar, and then headed back down the mountain. I had the headwind back for the downhill, and it stayed with me for the entire trip down.
I headed back through Tijeras and turned up Tramway to head for the house. I stayed on the trail instead of the road, to increase my sense of safety.
It was anice day, with a few clouds, and temps in the low 90s.
