Rush shop ride:
I had planned on heading North of town today, but my road bike had not one, but two catastrophic failures before I'd even got out the door. First my rear dérailleur cage fell off, that by itself was enough for me to change my plans to involve my CX bike. So while waiting for some more light, I took the time to true my rear wheel a little, which is when I discovered a complete failure of a hub flange.

Anyway those two issues took a lot of wind out of my sails, and I opted for a knobby tyred shop ride. Even with 9mm more tyre and 60psi less than everyone else, I was able to roll my fair share of turns in the fast group, thanks in part to the ripping northerly that kept our speeds within my gear range.
