Wind, Hills, and Chip Seal

No, this was not a ride in the European Peleton...this was Cowlitz County. Still early in the road riding season, we rode a hilly Pacific Ave to a flat but very windy Willow Grove. Willow Grove is a great place to ride, as there is hardly any traffic. But it sits right on the Columbia River and the raods are mostly chip seal so sometimes even on the flat road, it can feel like your riding up hill. Anyway, it worked out to only be a 28 mile ride but that was plenty for me. My 25c tires and compliant Land Shark frame and fork were more than sufficient for the chip seal. Smooth riding!
