no wind like a side wind
Had a grueling trek to the office this morning, it took fully ten minutes longer—all due to some wind.
I find an uneven side wind a good deal harder to deal with than a steady headwind, when cycling. The route I cycle is largely lined with streetcar tracks, and with parked cars and frequent patches of construction one is routinely forced to their edge. With a side wind in the mix, fun wow. Plus there's all the dust and grit. And the pedestrians being blown into your path.
Ugh. But as one of my young coworkers cheekily suggested, it's a better workout. Mrmble mumble twenty-somethings...
