I hate wind!
It feels like each weekend lately it has either been raining, snowing, or winding..is windy.
Today was no exception, but I decided to go out anyway. Due to the weather I decided to cycle around where I live. I knew if I went anywhere in my car I probably wouldn’t get out, just sit and ponder the gusts and life.
So I dressed up and off I trotted, peddled.
On another post I wrote about how to handle cycling in the wind. I took all my own advice. It helped but gosh it was windy today.
And as you can see by the pictures I live in quite a flat..no wind break area. Makes for a pleasant ride..not. But I went anyway, once more into the breach..for Harry, England, and Saint George! Though I don’t know anyone called Harry.
The strange building above I have been told is some kind of cult type thing. But I have never been in and don’t have the guts or Japanese to ask the man at the gate. What I do find interesting is the beginnings of a new road heading straight for it, but in fact nothing has progressed on that front for ages? Hmmm suspicious.
Anyway, my ride today was cold, windy, and browny-grey, apart from the sky.
There are a few small shrines along the route, but it is not a ride like last time.
At this point I had to decide whether to follow the dyke type road or get some shelter at the side on a crappy road. I did a bit of both.
Look at the wind! This flag was full on straight.
I won’t post a map because quite frankly it was rubbish. I used mapmyride again and prepared the map before I went, but I thought a river had a path at the side of it..which it did, but had a ruddy great fence too so I couldn’t get on to it. Score for the day 40km gusts, 26km distance, pooey attitude.
