The past three days have been a battle, getting to work. Not because of the bike, but because of the wind. We've a three days of wind out of the W SW, at 10- 12 mph, a devil of a crosswind, and head wind. So today, it was still out of the W but moved to the NW so it was in my face the whole way to work. What a break, huh? Not only was the wind out of the W NW it was blowing at 22 mph, with gusts upto 30mph. My average speeds were drastically killed, I was doing well to keep the gears clicking over at 21 mph, but was more like 17-18 mph. Even downhill, where normally I get 32-35 mph I found myself struggling to get 26. Man that wind was near impossible. My legs still ache from the commute to work.
