Never a dull moment in bike commuting. After lasting my first season of winter riding, I'm faced with a new foe: wind. A wind advisory has been issued for these parts. Oh, and it's unseasonably cold, too, with temps below freezing again. I thought we were well into spring.
I'm not sure what to do. I know I'll have to forego the fixed gear today, since the sustained winds are around 30mph, with gusts up to 45mph. My main concern, regardless which bike I choose, is not headwind, but rather wind from the sides, blowing me in all directions. The wind advisory cautions drivers of high profile vehicles, especially those travelling north and south. Great, that's precisely my direction. I don't want to be an inadvertant participant in a game of avoid the SUV.
Still trying to decide.
