It's a myth but I'm sure we've all heard that thing that Eskimo people have 50 words for snow, well out road riding in the West Pennines today we needed 50 words for wind. It was blowy, gusting, howling etc etc etc. It was unbelievably windy, and curiously in a 50 or so mile ride the wind was only behind us on two small sections the rest of the time it did into your face with eye watering velocity or whipped side on causing serious road bike wobble. The last hill of the day, which is particularly brutal, was double tough as I had to pedal hard to get up it and still pedal to get down the other side.
