My riding bud and I were struggling with a wicked head wind the other day. Spinning netted us a 10 mph average @ around 150 Average HR. It was a killer day.
About halfway through the ride from hell we had a thunder stroke of an idea. We asked each other, "Why don't we take one of these windy SOB days and just ride with the wind?! Then after a few hours call the better-halves from say a nice BBQ place that serves good bier and have them come pick us up. When they arrive we'll treat 'em to a good meal! Holy crow! That sounds like a lotta fun! We're planning to take this type trip soon! What a revelation!
Anyone else ever do this? Just hang up the grueling training ride and go with the wind??
