Ford Road - long and cold L2

About 3C but sunny, did Ford Road and then climbed up and over Westwood. Arrived home just after sunset with temp down to 0C. Other than a few bursts (like over the Pitt River bridge) this was L2 all the way. Maybe more like L3 for the last hour climbing over Westwood.

CTL is climbing back much faster and easier than last year, didn't hit 60 until almost mid Feb. Of course not having a broken collarbone helps... But still only a modest 5TSS/week climb.  It would be nice to have CTL > 90 for Spring Series, and since that has been pushed back two weeks this year it means I have seven weeks; 7x5 is 35, 60+35 > 90...
