Introducing the Savage 18

Scott and I met at his place for a nice windy ride. If I remember correctly, I think it was gusting 20-25mph. We braved the elements and headed on our way. I was still a bit sore from the Ironman, but not bad and Scott wanted to take a nap. The route he has is pretty cool. It's a nice mix of neighborhood, medium traffic, rolling hills and quiet lake-front roads. The wind was a factor for most of the ride, but mostly in the sense that we couldn't hear each other. There was one stretch on the way back where it was eerily quiet and we could hear each other. Tailwinds rock. Sadly that lasted only 30-45 seconds.
Along the way, we had a couple city sign sprints, with Scott nabbing a nice suprise win from behind.

All in all it was a great ride.
Afterwards, I stopped by the gym to hit my quota for the month. Sadly I didn't do anything but walk around the track talking to Lalla. I did step on the scale and I'm happy to report that I'm the lightest I've been this year - 192.6. Woohoo!

Here's my best-guess recreation of the route:
