    Another super vid. Those flags were-a-blowing

    My report - a 6 mile "stomp" after work. By "stomp" I mean 6 miles of local rolling-hills going as hard as my clyde legs will carry me - 14mph avg - I sure was gasping afterwards but home in time for my daughters "zhu-zhu" party

    I agree with funrover. I hate the wind also, it blows.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.

    They weren't that bad, maybe 20'ish. We ride in 45 but on flat trail. It's the climbing and the wind mix that makes the wind feel stronger. It was consistent and seemed to come from all directions.

    This area is know for highwinds though. At times the semis will pull over and park on the side of the fwy unable to travel, sometimes they turn over due to the wind.

    Anyone know of a site that tells what the winds speed were for certain days and areas? All forecast sites I see are for current conditions.
