    Dutch Treat

    60+mph headwinds... single speed bikes... aero nothing... sounds like fun:

    I debated putting it under Commuting, Touring and Ride Reports, but the sheer stupidity of it made it more Lownje-worthy.

    One of the funnest rides I ever had was riding from Manayunk (Northwest Philadelphia neighborhood) out to Valley Forge against a steady 25 mph direct headwind that was gusting to 35 mph.

    Going out, it was like riding uphill for 20 miles. I was barely able to make more than 5 mph.

    Coming back, with that blasting wind directly at my back, I was doing 20 - 30 mph without pedaling on flats, except when I was temporarily in wind shadows.

    I think if they switched to ceramic bearings they'd find it a whole lot easier

    Nosir. It's their stock pulleys that's slowing them down.

    Nevermind. I just saw that they're riding single speed bikes.

    Thatís freaking awesome! 5 miles of pure hell. I would def do that. We get some of those extremes as a beach area with wicked wind and no protection. I havenít ridden 60mph, so maybe Iím over zealous, Iíve ridder over 30 steady and gusting to 45+. It sucked. I crashed last weekend from a massive gust and Iím nursing some injuries. Broken finger being the worst of it.
    To date, philosophers have merely interpreted the world in various ways. The point however is to change it.
