Default Re: Wind resistance

I was really surprised how much a stiff headwind affects your riding. A tailwind is great but when you've got to come back home, it's an uphill battle for sure!

I've been coasting down some hills that typically I get some good speed from but when that wind is blowing the wrong way, it'll actually slow me down pretty good. To the point that I typically let the clutch out to gain a little speed.
