Had four hours on the schedule so I went for the Ripley Century. Had the wind at my back on the way out and averaged about 21 mph riding at just 217 watts avg or about 2:24. Paid for it on the way back with the headwind. Took 3 hours to get back. Ended up with 5:24, normalized power at 210, cadence at 89 and TSS at 248. Used my middle chainring on the way back to keep cadence up and power reasonable. Its very easy to try to push too hard into the wind at a low cadence. Just settled in and knew it was going to be a long ride back. Good training for upcoming 20 mile climbs in the contains. Today is an off day.
