Well I've never seen the point in suffering for one's art so I suppose the short answer is no. Actually you work just as hard with the wind behind you. When I did that 100 km trip I probably went about 5 kph faster than usual so I belted along and was just as knackered at the other end. The difference was I was happy and knackered instead of grumpy and knackered.

Simple solution to dealing with the wind: if it is blowing in the way you're going' date=' ride out or get a train back or vice versa if it is blowing towards your start point. I had a very pleasant 100 km in this way a couple of weekends ago.[/quote']

I've thought of doing that, but does it not feel a bit like cheating :tongue:

I see your point as I like to beast myself when I have the wind at my back. However, I think it feels great when you have had to work into the wind before getting the pleasure of the high speed trip home. :?:
