Right you are. I joke that when two cyclist meet, each will have a headwind.

BUT, but....my experience has been that westerlies tend to be stronger than easterlies, and the odds are better for westerlies, at least west of the Mississippi. All you gotta do to to confirm this is look at which ways the few trees in OK and KS lean.

I'm gonna take a tour where my direction each day will depend entirely on which way the wind is blowing. Call it the "Thar He Blows" tour.
