Take advantage of windy days to ride into headwinds as much as possible. Sure helped me, once I gained confidence in bike handling in crosswinds. I usually stick with old school rims, no deep aero rims.

Our prevailing wind is usually from the south, but I have alternate routes picked out for days when the wind is from other directions. It'll make a mile-long climb feel much longer and steeper.

It also made me more aware of the effects of aero kit and body position. But when I want a harder workout I'll sit up into the headwind, and wear flappy clothing.
