riding the South wind

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

cycling playground: Grimes canyon - thank you for this!This morning I woke determined to get in a longish ride as a pre-turkey / stuffing antidote.  Yeah, it was kind of cold (50s) and yeah, it was windy (20s), but off I went.  The strong wind was blowing due South, so I decided to head North... and kept going through Westlake and Thousand Oaks and Moorpark and through Grimes Canyon until I ended up in Fillmore.  At which point I turned around and rode the South wind home; nothing nicer than a tailwind behind and a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with my family ahead.

I hope you are having a wonderful day, spent quietly and peacefully with those you love...
