Having said that, there really is nothing like a great bike rdie (when you can't ski!!).

You got me. I have to agree.

I have to agree as well.? I used to avoid really windy days.? Now I just do the mountain bike instead and stay on the local trails sheltered by the trees.? I did a ride in 30 mph winds with gusts to 45 and wasn't affected until the way back (and I had set that to be downwind).? Could ride downwind at 15 mph without pedaling.
But I'm such a rookie -- half the time when I think I'm riding into a headwind I eventually realize that it's just the apparent wind that I'm creating.
