Ride to Framingham...

I didn't mean to ride to Framingham yesterday, but a road I wanted to take was closed so I had to improvise. I got a bit lost, but not too lost. I knew "roughly" where I was.

I typically go South, West, or Southwest-ish. Today I decided to go North for a change. I couldn't understand why I seemed to be struggling for the first half of the ride until I got home and saw that big spike in the ride profile. That also explains why I still got a relatively decent average mph for the total ride.

Tire Pressure...

After reading an article on "The Case for Lower Tire Pressure", I tried riding with 110 psi as opposed to 120 psi. I am not yet convinced lower is better.
