Why is that upside down???

Which is 10% of the time, the rest, as you crest the rise, the wind shifts 180 degrees and even though you have a descent, you still have the headwind!72.) There is a portion of my typical morning ride which, depending on the direction of the wind on any given day, is the bane of my riding existence. It is a long steady uphill grade... just a few degrees of incline... but if the wind is out of the north, it is soul destroying.
But here's the thing. No matter how bad it is... no matter how hard the headwind blows... if you persevere, eventually you reach the top and get to turn the bike around. And once you do the wind stops and the constant rushing in your ears is replaced by blissful calm and quiet. Before you lies a long straight downhill run with the wind at your back. In my head, I call it the "Weeeee" ride, because every time I make that turn I am suddenly 9 years old again, having slogged up a snowy hill pulling my sled so that I could revel once again in the free, fast and all-to-short plunge back down the hill...
No silliness this time. Just an observation.
