    Pretty windy in Weber Canyon (Utah) today

    Anyone come up to ride from Mountain Green today? You might have seen me riding up Weber Canyon from South Ogden, or back down later. I rode up to a friend's house in Morgan and had to battle some pretty good winds for most of the 45 miles. It was work to ride *down* I-84/Weber Canyon on the way home.

    Cheers,

    No. I haven't ridden yet today, but yesterday was horrible. I was going up Big Cottonwood, and thought I should give up and turn around. I'm glad I did, too. The gusts were knocking me around, when I descended. I would go around a turn, and wham, the crosswind would almost knock me over. No fun, and more than a little scary. Today, if it's anything like that, I think I'll stay in the valley.

    I have the worst luck with Weber Canyon. Whenever I go up it, the wind blows down, whenever I go down, it blows up. I'm looking forward to getting a tail wind one of these days coming down so I can coast at 50 mph all the way back to 89.

    Good times.
