I rode to work all but one day this month. I find that remarkable.
I'm sitting here listening to the wind blow. It is gusting to near 45mph(72km/h). Since it was warm today many folk commented to me on what a wonderful day to ride it was. And, it was. Still, I can't say that windy is my favorite riding condition. Days like today when there are large swings between the gusts and the ambient wind speed bring a special challenge. In an urban setting the wind seems to be magnified by the large buildings--almost like riding in a wind tunnel. It is great when the wind is to ones back, but the crosswinds are enough to make even me lean.... lean into the wind.
- 58F/14C , clear and the wind mostly to my back for the ride to work.
- 63F/17C with a few clouds and crazy wind for the ride home.
