My rides on Long Island, NY frequently start on the south shore in Nassau County (western section not the city), taking me north to the hills, usually with a head wind when it's a nice day , as prevailing winds will be NNW. If the ride is long enough, which they are in the summer, I then get the on-shore breeze off the Atlantic sometime around 11AM, so head wind going out and head wind going home. Only way to avoid it is to get out before 7 so a 4 hr ride sometimes misses the ocean wind. That means getting up early. I'll take the wind.
