my rear wheel for my Campy equipped gear bikes is being re-built so I ventured out into a 35 mph wind to ride yesterday. Had I not been pedaling, downhill, I would have been blown backwards I think. (The cross-wind was more than a little bit scary too)
I kept reaching for shifters.....I am so ashamed....


FWIW, the return ride, I kept reaching for the brakes because there is just a limit to how long I can maintain 115 to 125 rpm.....

I too was at the mercy of 30+ mph head/cross winds for some reason I didn't take the geared bike and my legs are yelling at me now because of it!
