40mph wind gusts


Dirtyhip

Recommended Posts

I did a charity ride with 40 mph winds.  The century loop started on a false flat riding straight into the wind.  It really sucked.  We turned back though we were heading down the false flat on new asphalt with the wind at our back.  I was riding at about 35 mph without much effort.  That was fun!!
