Thanks! Great tips for us flatlanders. Since I pretty much ride all 4 directions on my usual route AND there is almost always a light to strong breeze, I'm always riding at least 25% of my ride in to the wind. In fact, yesterday it seemed 3 of 4 directions I rode were into the wind. That's fine - I am now prepared for my tri on Sunday!

Thanks for the link! I live in a 'flat land' and am getting ready for my very first organized ride. It is out-of-state and will be hilly! I appreciate the tips!
