i'd rather have the winds heading out, then they can push me home (if i'm lucky enough for the winds to actually be tailwinds).
what type of winds do you normally have down there?
i can't wait until the winds calm down up here, should be in a few weeks (judging by data on some websites).
kinda sucks when i see a few miles of rolling hills before me with a 20+ mph headwind. i'll be pedaling my ass off to look down and see 7 mph up a slight incline and only get up to about 13-14 on the slight decline.
my last 2 rides have been in milder winds, and it's amazing. now if this rain would stop.
