Early Spring Ride

What a gorgeous day in Brooklyn today. It was sunny and close to 70º. I took advantage of the early spring weather and put in close to 50 miles around Rockaway Beach and back. I wanted to push myself harder, but needed to back off a bit to soak in the views of the ocean. There was a slight headwind on my way back, but not even that could dampen my spirits. It was also the first time I wasn't in my deep winter gear, riding only with shorts, a base layer and jersey.

The view of Jamaica Bay was stunning. This is what I ride around. Just on other side is the Rockaways. You can also see the wind making its mark onto the water's surface.
