Tonight’s ride featured winds gusting up to 50 km/h. Tough. But the winds are usually up in this area. Most days above 15 km/h.
Grinding into strong headwinds is not a lot of fun and if the wind is from the northwest, it is in the front for most of the ride. I did 30 kilometers and I think 25 of them were against the wind. Even though we are at the end of April, I am still wearing the long johns and jacket. Windy and cold.
Looks like it might be just as bad in Texas. This post inspired me to get out tonight despite the strong winds. Thanks Andy.
