There is nothing more exhilerating (within the law) than biking with a 50km/hr wind at your back!

Forget the river and the snow and the train…  Hang on and pedal!

Woohoo!  What a ride!

I had my first tumble of the winter today.  That was exhilerating too though also a bit sobering.  I was going at a pretty good clip on a clear back road after sundown when I hit a patch where the wind had blown several inches of snow across the road.  When I knew I was going down I amazingly was able to jump off the bike and land running.  No major harm done to steed or rider, but it could have been a different story if there’d been a car nearby or another rider drafting behind me.
