Meput, don't come to the SF bay area to cycle. All we have is large amounts of wind and hills!! I do think it is human nature to push hard against the wind. In relality it is about the same as climbing hills (although mentally more trying). You need to pick a power level that you can maintain and just stay there and accept that pace. The wind is just as powerful as a hill and no cyclist can overpower the wind (at least not for very long). And of course flying downwind can be a lot of fun, almost like skiing!!
