Long ride today – actually the ride that I had planned for yesterday. It had a little bit of everything; tail- head- and strong crosswinds, a few drops of rain, ice, wet and dry tarmac and some clouds and a lovely sun.
With +5 degrees Celsius the riding conditions today would have been excellent (at least for being Sweden in December), if it wasn’t for the wind. The wind yesterday was a bit stronger in the gusts, but today it was more intense, blowing all the time. Had some parts with a really tough cross-wind. The round ended with 10K on flat clean tarmac with the wind in the back, enabling me finish strong.

Ended up with a good 92K in 3:23 today, making a total of 311K. Four riding days to go and 189K to cover. Thinking about taking a well-deserved sleep-in and rest day tomorrow (all rides have started before 8am so far). 189K in 3 days shouldn’t be a problem.
