Don’t waste a tailwind

I am about to leave Wyoming over the next day or two, and 40% of my ride will be compete. For me, it is hard to believe. There have been lots of ups and downs. I anticipated Yellowstone as a highlight, and had never heard of the Wind River Canyon. I know that much of Wyoming has no cell phone coverage, and lots of people get by with 5-12 TV channels. I have heard many tales of 40 below winter days. ¬†Another absolutely beautiful state will be behind me, and now it is on to Colorado. Can’t wait to see it. With all of this said, I have learned to never pass up a good tailwind! It is a huge gift. Days will come when I have to face a brutal wind, but that makes taking advantage of a good tailwind all that more important.
