Yesterday was the craziest wind I've ever ridden in. We did a 57 miler out and back to the west with wind mostly coming from the south. At the end of the ride we had to turn SE slighly into the wind and it was crazy. It looked like a scene out of the Wizard of Oz. Long brown corn stalk leaves blowing out of the fields and getting caught in the spokes. The gusts were blowing us all over the road. Some gusts knocked me down to 5 mph. Weather.com indicated the winds were 41 mph by the time we finished the ride.
