A few days ago the wind felt like spring again. Gusts up to 50mph. My fence blew over, my cat started to blow away, and riding a bicycle was really frustrating. Many people say that riding into the wind is the equivalent of riding hills. At some point, when I have free time, I will attempt to formulate this wind mph versus hill slope equivalence. But for now, I know I would take a hill over wind any day. Mostly for the peace of mind that a calm day allows.
