On my ride this weekend, the wind was whipping at 30+ mph. Due to the perversity of cycling (wherein 85% of any ride will be either uphill, into the wind or both), a lot of my ride was into the wind. So how do you all deal with the wind. Although I know that I will have to gear down and ride slower into the wind, it seems to be totally depressing to me to have to gind it out that way. I just cannot get to the point of emotionally accepting the slow pace, and end up ridding at very high heart rates for the entire time of th ride while going into the wind.
Any good tricks to get to just slow down and take it easy?
