Blessing: It's just so beautiful riding the 101, rancho santa fe, del dios routes. The beach truly is gorgeous, and the weather is so nice.
Curse: THE WIND.
It seems the closer you live to the ocean, the more windy it gets and all my routes usually seem to be going STRAIGHT into a headwind which makes the actual RIDING seem un-enjoyable. Any tips of how to make riding more fun when there's a nasty head wind in my way?
