20 - 30 mph? Hmm. I conveniently need to be in the car today to pick up a rather large mirror, so I won't be cycling. Be careful everyone who is riding today- as the tail wind may be grand, but the headwind sounds like hell- and I won't even go into what a 45mph crosswind gust might feel like.
Ha ha ha...thanks, Gin! I've only done it once so far, so we'll see how it goes. Gotta start slowly and work my way up. I'm not sure if I'll get to the point where I'll do it every day, but I'd like to do it at least 2-3 times a week this summer.
It would help if the weather were decent...if it doesn't rain, I'm going to try again on Monday.
Shay--I am impressed. I think 15 miles is a long way to ride to work even in still, mild weather. I am more of a 1/2 to five miler. Not that I can't/won't do longer rides, but not for routine trips.
LFP was windy but ridable. Heck, I prefered today to yesterdays direct headwind.
My ride East, then South, this morning wasnt all that bad. The wind wasnt really up yet. Coming home this evening just after five PM was wet, but I was kitted out in all my rain gear so I stayed bone dry and warm. The tail wind I was lucky to have was a great boon. I love it when the wind is out of the East.
But it comes with a price, usually the East wind brings rain and hard weather.
Heading East this Morning=sloooow the Westbound trip I shoulda had a sail.
Plus I'm new to the "fixie" world and a head wind is not ever your friend but with one gear=leg burn.
