I woke at 5:15 to the sound of rain, rolled over and woke again at 7:15 to find Carrie packed up and ready to go.
Rain stopped as I packed, and then it rained on and off most of the day, with strong NW headwind. So it took 6:42 to go 58 miles at 8.93mph, compared to 77 miles in 6:48 at 11.28 mph with tailwind into St. Louis. Time is actual time riding on the bike.
Plus Carrie took an alternate route which had many hills for her. Tiring day, and the two pictures show about all I saw. Now we are veterans of Challenging Weather vs. only Lucky Fair Weather riders.
