Biking - SWC Thursday Night Ride

Tonight was the first SWC Thursday night bike ride of the season, and Holly was hosting it. That meant I was the pizza gopher and overall assistant. About 20 people showed up on a windy cool evening, and we headed out at 6:30. Most people were doing the 17-mile option, but I needed to get back a little ahead of the rest to go get the pizza, so I bailed early and did a little under 15. As always on these rides, I push harder than I normally would if I were alone, and that mentality continued even after I broke off. Despite the gusty winds, I averaged a bit over 15mph and even extended my original planned ride by a mile or two, still finishing with time to spare.
