Just got home from riding the American River trail, really strong winds for the ride home.

Took the kids to my race in Folsom today. Lucas did the 1 lap kids race before my race. When it was over, he said "That wind was so bad. It was like an invisible hill!"

I can attest to the wind ... it was like a wind tunnel on Chileno Valley near Petaluma on the Volagi Solidarity ride. I have no idea how strong it was, but it was definitely harder than any of the climbs we did. Lucky allergies didn't attack me too badly.

Saturday and Sunday the wind was 20-30 mph sustained, with gusts to 45 mph. I chose not to ride in that nonsense. No point in feeling like Mary Poppins.

That's what drafting is for. :lol:

Yeah wind was blowing hard in Folsom this weekend. Specially on Saturday. During the circuit race it was calm thought.

Whatever the case, I wish the wind would settle the f- down. It's proving to be a real disincentive to go out and ride. And now, we have unusually hot weather here in the Santa Clara County area to add to the misery.

Ah, global climate change... what wonders are in store for us yet?

It has died down a lot today (but it's hot). I rode 50 miles over the weekend. 20 miles on Saturday (really windy) and 30 yesterday (not as bad as Saturday). I just backed off a bit going into the wind and enjoyed the tail wind when I could. The rides were slower, but it was still good to get out.

25 miles Volcano to Sutter Creek and back on Sunday, very fine weather.

Took a beginning sea kayak course on Lake Natoma on Saturday - it was so windy we had an actual capsize crossing the lake. Got one more t-rescue in because of that.

Other side of the country over here, but the winds have been ridiculous in Minnesota the past few days. Rode in 41 degree weather and 15mph headwinds with 20mph gusts. Its the end of the world I'm tellin yah.
