Fairly new member here, and who just found this "local" section of the forum.
I live near C-470 and Quebec. My parents live in Parker, off Jordan road, not too far from E-470. Yesterday I rode over to see them on a nicely paved (cement) trail that runs beside E-470. It was about eight miles or so each way, at least I think so from previous car drives over that way.
How is it possible to have a strong headwind blowing at you going BOTH WAYS?!
Just a rhetorical question, of course, but wow, that was a windy and tough ride getting there and as I was struggling against the wind going east, I figured, "well, at least I'll get home FAST!"
Nope. It was as if the wind knew my plans and circled around to thwart my efforts later on.
It was a good ride, though, and one I'll do again. Below is a shot from somewhere in the vincinity of E-470 and Chambers, I think.
