Utilitaire 6 of 12 - Coffeeneuring

Date: 2/25/2012
Destination: Hard Bean Coffee - Dock St Annapolis, MD
Miles Completed: 25.5 miles round trip.
Learned / observed: It was WINDY crossing the Naval Academy Bridge over Severn River
Dark Ride: No

A cool, windy morning.  I met a few others of SPP for a ride to Annapolis for breakfast. The west wind was so strong that I had to keep pedaling on the way DOWN from the peak of Naval Academy Bridge over the Severn River to keep my momentum.  Normally that descent is good for 30 mph if I just get down in something resembling an aerodynamic position.  But on this morning we had to pedal ourselves down off the bridge.  Not sure the wind would have stopped me dead, but it certainly slowed me down.  Also provided quite boost on the way home.
