Riding into the wind

I've previously expressed my enjoyment of riding in the rain, but now I have to tell you how I just do not like riding into the wind!  It feels like your wheels are been dragged through treacle. Add going uphill to the mix, and it feels like somebody has attached a bungee cord to your back and you're pedalling furiously to escape.

Maybe I just need more miles on the road to build up my strength, or this is one part of cycling that just won't get any easier.


  1. If you rode into the wind this morning, then there's a nice chance you'll have it behind you this evening, which is as nice as riding in the rain.

  2. I hate strong winds as well - rain is nothing compared to them - and they actually can make cycling unsafe for me because they can throw my bike.
