    And yet, today was 62 degrees with a 20 mph "breeze" out of the west. That ain't a breeze, that's fricking windy! I got changed to ride and changed my mind when my bike had a flat tire on the rear before I even got it down off the hook

    Yes I'm sure, that doesn't mean I'm right.

    What is Wind?

    Wind is the horizontal motion of air, due to the pressure difference between two places. Wind is the perceptible natural movement of the air, especially in the form of a current of air blowing from a particular direction.
    But the question arises, why do we get these differences? It's due to the rising and sinking of air in the atmosphere. Places where air is rising we see lower pressure at the earth's surface, and where it's sinking we see higher pressure. On any level surface in Northern Hemisphere, wind always blow keeping low pressure to its left. For instance, when there is low pressure in South India during winter season we get easterly winds, keeping low pressure to its left.
    In case there were no rising and sinking motion in the atmosphere, there would be no wind and also no weather.


    What is Breeze?

    Light wind which has a soothing feeling, especially when it is a warm and sultry day is called breeze. We can simply say that wind blowing at a certain speed is called breeze.
    Breeze is a very light wind which we can just feel, while wind blows harder and we can even hear it. Wind and breeze are two sides of the same coin. When it's soothing we call it breeze and when harsh it is generally referred as wind.

    It was about the same conditions down here. I was determined to get a ride in but, I had a fitful night and had no energy. It took me over an hour to dress and break out the bike, and then I managed about 5 miles before getting back home and throwing in the towel. I rode as poorly with the tailwind as I did into the headwind.

    But yesterday, what a Glorious Day. I don't think that the wind ever was above 8mph, it made no difference what direction I was pedaling it was effortless. 50 miles and I felt like I had 30 miles still in me when I got home.

    I rode 9 out of the previous 12 days for about 350 miles and think that, maybe, that had something to do with my sluggishness today.

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."
    John Rogers
