If you are planning a cycle in windy weather, remember that it will ultimately affect your performance speed by up to at least half of your normal rate.
Most importantly of all though is your overall safety. If you have a cycling session planned but don’t feel confident cycling in windy conditions, reschedule or train indoors instead.
Although it is trickier, it is not impossible so long as you are fully prepared. Before you set off on your cycle, make sure to check the weather forecast and to plan your route. Doing this will allow you to plan the route that will involve the least amount of time cycling into a head wind.
