Checking hour-by-hour forecasts nearly every day, I've also long since learned that the winds around here tend to be easterly. Alas, that means that, more often than not, I have the wind against me on the return half of my rides. The bike path I use ends only one mile East of home, so I have no other choice.
Sometimes I have to remind myself that I'm lucky I don't have to try to keep up with these guys. And that poor rider who almost got blown away -- if he had to chase back on against a "Windkracht 7" headwind, think what an effort that was!
