When you have to lean sideways on your bike so the wind doesn’t blow you over.  When you can’t hear cars coming because the wind blasting all sounds out.

You know it’s windy out when……..

….you get your wife to drive you out into the headwind so you can ride back home with a screaming tailwind at 30mph.

Ride smarter, not harder.

You’re cranking hard, into a headwind, and you look down at your cyclecomputer, and it shows you’re doing 6 mph!   Been there, done that.

riding east between Woodward and Madrid on the high trestle bridge trail, I knew it was windy when I was making lane changes on the bike trail that I didn’t know that I wanted to make.

How is it that ride always manages to have a headwind both days?

You actually welcome hills because they will briefly block the wind.
