Windy bike ride

The commute to work on Friday was fun, thanks to a pretty decent tail wind.  The problem was that on the way home, that tail wind was now a head wind.  

Crossing the Bells Bridge, the wind was barrelling right up the Clyde, and it was a bit of a surprise when I noticed just how far over I was leaning into the wind, to stay on the bike.  Other than that, the other fun part was a small downhill which I always freewheel down.  This time, thanks again to that headwind, I was pedalling to keep moving!!  

In other bike related fun, I picked up a wee book at the weekend, with 40 bike routes in Central Scotland.  Some (only a few) are mtb only as they’re pretty much all off-road.  The rest are quiet road/forest track/cycle paths.  Can’t wait for the better weather to take the odd day’s holiday and go a wee run.
