upwind downhill

Train i need to and therefore a little trip in the neighborhood.

Destination – Vastseliina. Distance – 41,5km time 1:30:46 average speed 27,1 max 53km/h (!).

I knew that coming back would be mostly downhill so i hoped for great speed and time. Didn’t work out that way ’cause right when i turned towards home i hit wind blowing straight into my face, so it became rather brutal, adding a killer long ascent on which i got the aforementioned 53km/h – going downhill of course. Often it blew from the side and never the way it would have made my cycling easier. The computer seems to be lying ’cause when i compare the distance from the bike’s computer and from the map in the internet then i get a difference of about 2km. gotta check with another bike.
