The wind was against me again. I failed to achieve my desired time/ average speed.

However, I WAS thwarted by the same road construction that has thwarted me the last three times. And i am getting better at semi spinning up the hills, maintaining better speed, and most important, stamina in the latter uphill sections.

I normally stop and rest, buy a candy bar, eat a Gu, just before a vicious 9 minute climb. About an hour and 15 minutes into my ride. I ate the Gu on the bike and hydrated while riding. Don't know if that helped or hurt.

2:10 hrs (3rd time with this exact time.)
