Even with a head wind, you still want to keep your RPM's around 90. Being in the Army, we do PT (physical training) everyday. So, I live 5.25 miles from home. Ride my bike there, do Pt, then ride home. On the way there, I usually catch a headwind and tailwind on the way home. Since I have started paying attention to my RPM's, my time has dropped drastically. 20 minute commute to 17:30. Over 5 miles, that is huge!

It seems like I spend most days riding into the wind no matter which way I go and as you know it can be demoralizing seeing 5 or more mph knocked off your average. So how do you deal with that?
One thing I like to do is move up the sprocket a few gears and really spin. Maybe around 120rpm. You certainly wont be going faster but it feels that way.
