It’s Baaack gravel bike windy boulder

Yes dear readers, the wind has returned to Colorado’s Front Range.  And here in Boulder County, it made quite the entrance.  Thirty mile-an-hour descents that would normally find you in the big chainring had to be tackled in the small ‘ring just to maintain a speed in the low teens.  Broken branches and leaves made the paved bike lane look more like East Coast singletrack.

Maybe it’s time I installed one of these Boulder wind gauges: gravel bike windy boulder

Hoping for a tailwind on the ride home…
