Damn Wind.... :(

I put in 18 windy miles of gravel travel this morning. Since my bike computer is dead, I used my gps to keep track of speed and miles today. I barely kept my average at 10 mph. The trip up, I had a hard time keeping it at 7. I had to lean the bike into cross winds and gusts would blow me across the road. The way back rocked with me in the big ring most the time. First ride on new tires too. IRC Mythos 700x40. They felt great on gravel at 40psi. I'll try them at 50psi next time out. Oh yeah, and my water bottles froze, as did my Camelbak hose. (forgot to blow the water back into the bladder )
