No, winds blows, gusts and buffets. Wind is like a hill without a soul. Gear down and suffer. Or in my case, mt biking near wind driven snow drifts, wind blows and then your helmet is under the snow.
What is with it this week? Every day with gusts up to 30km/h on the way home. WTH!
"It's MegaMaid! She's gone from suck to blow!"
the low pressure area , and the hotter air Pulls the higher pressure area's air to equalize and replace It
Where it's Good for Windsurfing and Kite flying will be more work in one direction but good fun downwind.
Start your day's ride into the wind , then the return trip will be less work.

ride a 60 pound single speed old Schwinn for 10 miles into a strong wind, separates the men from the boys
Head wind sucks, but side wind (esp. sudden gusts) is dangerous when there are vehicles passing by.
