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.
