I'd like to say that today's ride was blighted by the wind but that would attract the wrong sort of person. So we'll call it a gale instead

I knew the subject would flush you out David. (See what I did there?)  But it was true, yesterday and today have been a long battle against blustery winds, and no matter which way we turned it was always in-yer-face.

I guess the gods are toying with me as retribution for the charmed life I have so far enjoyed.  All those sunny afternoons, new bikes and long lunches have to be paid for somehow.
