    :laugh: You know it's strange I've just battled over the Black Isle on my bicycle, against a head wind that had me cycling hard to go downhill! It was raining and freezing.
    Struggled down slopes in low gear that I would normally cruise down downing twenty plus without turning the pedal.
    I'm now sitting with a coffee and a peanut butter piece, and I looking back at the ride, and do you know what? It was one of my best rides, that is to say one I am proudest off anybody can cycle on a nice sunny day but it takes a real cyclist to go out when the weather foul!
    Or am I just crazy?

    You're just crazy. I gave up trying to prove myself years ago, nowadays I don't go out unless the sun is shining.

    Yes you are crazy, you have just gone soft and forgotten what wind is after the fine weather in the Highlands this past winter.

    Go for it George. Well done mate. :tongue:

    I always remember riding around Cardigan Bay in a head wind. Gorse bushes were rolling towards us at a good rate. Later we discovered it had been a Force 8 we had been riding in. ;)
