Today storms were hundred + miles south, but it created terrible local winds. Usually wind speeds were around 15 mph. Gusts would come from 25 up to 40 mph. Our winds are usually under 10 mph.
I have gone out on days like this. Be careful! Riding through woods breaks the wind nicely especially an area of pine. These strong winds usually take down some big limbs. Typically I will find a major limb or even a tree across the tree lined rail trail. On the road you can be buffeted like a leaf without warning.
I now stay in on days with unusually high winds for safety sake. On these recent days of normal wind velocity are good spirit and stamina builders.
