Notes: Riding in heavy wind can become a real challenge for your body and mind. You need to stay focused and just keep on doing what you’re doing all the time: Pedal.
Sometimes the wind gets so intense, it feels like you’re not moving forward at all. Then, the wind may be crossing, hitting your flank like a train. You need to react quickly, but don’t hesitate, after a short time you’ll figure out the difference. I always imagine, it’s like surfing on a wind wave. And suddenly, riding your bicycle in heavy wind feels so cool…
