Headwind - Recovery during CLIMBING!
Did 64 mi this morning, a beautiful nice country ride which really was made challenging by 20mph headwinds/crosswinds for 3/4 of the ride.
Has a couple of stiff climbs, never would have considered I would ever use a climb for recovery!
I think the benefit of the tailwind doesn't compare to the pain caused by a headwind.
Was strange to be able to pedal up to 20 mph to match the wind!
I think Clyde here got to burn a couple of extra calories today.
