Wind – From the East? – On a Sunday?

That’s different – complete 180degree direction change to the normal prevailing wind – and blowing something like 15mph, gusting 25.   So – todays typical Sunday spin was very different to the norm.   Usually, it sees me hammering the first 30km in about a hour, then turning and hitting a wall of air.    Today, it was go out and grind for 90 minutes, then turn first across then run with a a side-tail wind for the rest of the ride.    Even looking at the speed plot on Strava, you can see the way the wind was blowing.    Other than a couple of minor 100 yard sectors in the middle of Pontefract, I hit a whole string of Strava “trophies” including 3 proper “top 10’s” and half a dozen PB’s – wind assisted or not, there were times when I felt I was flying!
