 61 degrees, light winds of 5-15 miles an hour. Such was the forecast for today.

Not bad for March, I think. Especially not bad considering the snow storm we had at the beginning of the week.

One can't just let such good weather go unnoticed, so I took the Austro-Daimler out. Which I have named Surprise. Because, y'know, it's surprising.

I wound up blazing past both of my usual turn around points down Lake Mary Road, because I felt pretty good, and ended up riding around Mormon Lake. Overall it was a great ride, with less headwind than I'm used to.

I even stopped to take some pictures of Surprise out in the sun at the overlook... Click the pictures for higher res and better views:

Lugged steel bikes, they just look great.

I even took some pictures that don't have Surprise in them:
Looking across Mormon Lake to Mormon Village
The San Francisco Peaks, from Mormon Lake Overlook.
I toasted my legs pretty good this time, with a total of probably 15 minutes of stop time. All in all, a great day of riding.

Work tomorrow ought to be interesting.
Mileage: 55.9
