Ridin’ in Miami

Greetings, my freewheeling amigos.  I am settled down in Miami, which is not a great biking city.  However, today, I went on a 25 mile ride over the Rickenbacker Causeway out to Key Biscayne.  I went with my friend and co-worker, Dr. Eric Sokol.  We finally have weather that is not tire-meltingly hot, but it was windy as all hell today.  On the way back, coming down the highest part of the bridge with the wind at my back, I went faster than I have ever rode on a bicycle, 42 mph.
