Apr-6: Bapview - Spin-out-the-Legs

I thought my legs were completely recovered from Friday-Saturday-Sunday.  But I found out that was not true, esp. regarding my right leg, well before I reached Six Forks Rd.  Sitting and strolling about clearly does not provide insight into fatigue or lack thereof. 

Strong south-southwest wind.  Slow start into the wind, trying to warm up the leg.
Decided to do the "Bapview" course so I wouldn't be tempted to think I was doing a "TT". 

Pedaling was a lot easier downslope and/or with a tailwind -- esp. when downslope and with a tailwind.

Lots of yellow.  In the air.  On the ground.  On trees, bushes, grass.  Collecting on the forward facing surfaces of the handle-bars and the entire bike in general.  Also on me, Ebenezer's Nightcap, and my new goggles.
