Usually this one doesn't bother me too much, but this morning felt like a chore, despite riding the new Specialized to work.

I think I must have got old over the weekend.

i'm 28 and hate headwinds.
they add at least 15minutes to my commute plus an extra bucket of sweat.

headwinds can f**k right off.

the only thing i hate more are headwinds with the small sharp rain.

Only one thing worse than a headwind. Thats a headwind on a climb. The road over ditchling beacon in sussex springs to mind....
