Any of you that have ridden in the ill-adel the past couple of days have probably encountered the joys of the 50mph winds in yo face... as with any headwind of relative strength, rider's gotta stand up and mash with a smile or else the wind, wins and we cant have that. I experienced this more than I care to recall when i was nestled in chi-town as well, (obviously). Similarly the rider must respond in kind on all of the various hills and climbs we may encounter. So... i contemplated then, and considered again recently, the parallels of the two situations. Might any of you thinking men know of an equation that assimilates the MPH's of the wind gusts with the grade of inclination on a climb? also... feel free to respond with any wind stories/issues/discoveries/solutions you may have?
