Too gusty for cycling?

Gusts

Any wonder it was hard work cycling today? According to Metcheck.com (see graphic above) there were 39mph gusts at about the same time I headed out on the bike. Consequently, I cut my trip short because there were  times I could barely keep the bicycle upright.

I basically did one loop from Hammersmith to Barnes, and even along the river, where I thought it would be sheltered, it was incredibly blowy — and lots of branches on the ground to proove it.

Total distance: 6.21miles (10km) | Ride time: 35min and 57sec | Average speed: 10.3mph | Top speed: 18.4mph
