Turns out to have been quite windy although not as cold as it was riding in this morning. The wind was up and I struggled in most sections down Burnet to average over 20MPH. Add to that I still had to stop at a few lights and I didn't expect to be fast.
So when I got down to Barton Springs Rd I was surprised to see 34:20 on my stop watch for the 12.5-miles. I can only put this down to the lack of traffic, it meant I could slow approaching red or changing lights, and then sprint flat out when they changed.
I need to get a proper white front light that is static and points directly forward. I've done all my winter mileage, and tonight, on the cheap winter training wheels I bought last year, so far so good.
