I went for a bike ride today. Had to ride in the same direction as the wind otherwise I would have basically been at a standstill - well, maybe not quite, but would have required more than I had in me that's for sure.
Going with the wind I managed to ride the 13 km. from home to McLennan in 35 minutes. For a few moments here and there I was going 30km an hour. Not bad at all. The wind is good for something. Pushing me on my bike and keeping the bugs away.
