35. Ride from work to home in under 15 minutes

1) 13:54 on September 8, 2011
  I did have to stop on Broadway at the light for about 40 seconds but I caught good breaks the rest of the way.  I was definitely winded when I got home.
2) 13:53 on September 20, 2011
  Another stop at the Broadway light but no real troubles beside that.  I got my bike tuned up last week and everything is riding real smooth.

 It was pretty windy and I really had to work hard against the wind at times.  I hit 41 mph on my way home on one of the hills.  It was definitely wind aided.

 The wind was helping a little.  I had to stop and wait for 35 seconds to turn onto our street.  I'm glad it wasn't double that!

 The wind was pretty strong today.  I didn't have to stop at any of the major intersections.  I just got my bike back yesterday from a tune-up.  It is riding really smooth which is really nice.  I got up to 34 mph as my top speed down the Illinois hill.

 I don't know how but on a windy and rainy day I made it home in under 15 minutes.  I was stopped at Ohio St. waiting to cross for almost a minute and I was stopped at the Broadway light for about a minute too.  I kept looking at my watch and wondering how on earth I was making such good time.  Hopefully this can keep up and I can get done this school year.

 I got stopped at Farnsworth and at Broadway by traffic and a light.  Otherwise the whole trip went pretty well.

Windy ride.  I thought it was going to be close on time, but I got lucky in the end and made a pretty good time.
9) 14:30 on May 14, 2012
Nothing special...I was pretty tired at the end of this ride.
10) 14:12 on May 30, 2012
It was a windy day.  I pushed it hard and was really tired at the end.
