You are one tough cookie Condorita!
.... I have buds that are ascared to ride in the wind. SOme really tough badazzes that won't ride inthe wind cause it hurts too much!
I was laughing about it today cause there was a little 6 year old gal riding with her daddy on the trail today. She was riding against the wind and doing well. Daddy on a nice roadie and the lil gal on a really nice itty bitty roadie.
Good idea using the wind barrier. I once was dong an all out training ride with a bud. He was killing me till we hit a very windy straigh flat section. I moved over to the side of the road then used the hedges as a wind barrier. I blew by him like he was standing still. After punishing me for 50 miles on a hilly course, he was demoralized and gave up!
....He thought I just had some left in the tank. Well, he still can't figure out how I did it and I aint telling!
I did learn something from watching tour De France videos!
