Several of my loops involve riding up and down the North East coast. As a general rule, if there is a headwind, it will be on the way back down. The question is how much wind is too much wind to venture out? I suspect like many of us, I usually check the BBC website. Up to 10mph can be safely ignored, but after that things get more tricky. About 12mph is OK, but if the Beeb is saying 15mph or more, I'm reluctant to ride. How do you judge wind before going out?
