Riverhead run

A noticeably strong headwind blew against us as Jesse Brown, Rodney Millard and I cycled up CR 101, Patchogue-Yaphank Road. I barely kept in front of Rodney at 17 mph; at times, he was out in front.

We made our right turn at Long Island Avenue and the wind was gone. What a relief! Sure, the pavement on CR-101 was in better shape but now the wind was blocked by the trees. Jesse and I rolled on and Rodney zoomed ahead out of sight. As we approached our turn, I saw Rodney waiting for us at the light and called out for him to make a left then a right. Zip! He was gone while Jesse and I cruised on, chatting at 17 mph .
