Riding in hurricane force winds!

Posted by on February 28, 2006

I don’t think it was that windy last night, but it was the windiest weather I’ve ever ridden in during my bike commute. I didn’t stand up on my pedals on the uphills, and I really had to upshift when I was riding directly against the wind. The rain was coming down sideways, and a half mile from home, my eyes started tearing because someone had a fire going, and I think the rain was bringing down the ash and smoke into my eyes. I heard that Angel Island experienced winds of 98 mph last night. Tonight, it’s going to be calm, but it will rain again Wednesday through Friday. I’m glad they had the Tour of California last week when the weather was a lot nicer.
