Can't get the Garmin to upload. Error! Come on BT!
Wind: Strong with gusts
Course: County roads from Cleburne to Glen Rose and back, hilly, black top, some shoulder. And a Norther blew in last night, dark clouds, cool north wind, etc. Unfortunately it warmed up and the wind kept increasing from the North. Which gave us a strong head wind for the last 30+ miles :(
