Is my memory playing tricks on me, or is it more windy more often than when I was a teenager?

I started cycling quite a lot when I was about 15, which would have been 1983, and I don't remember it being this windy so often.

Was thinking exactly the same thing myself, the other day. And it does not matter wether I am riding North, East, South or West all within five minutes of each other but it always seems into a strong wind. Yet the trees don't move at all!

Should I take that as a compliment ;-)

I run also. And find the same nowdays. Oh, I weigh 3kg more than twenty years ago.

That must be it, I'm so fast now that there's always a head wind.

I wish. :P

Perhaps you're not quite as *ahem* "aerodynamic" as you were at age 15 :wink:
