Monday brought quite strong winds again, from the SW. For a change of scenery, and because of those winds, I decided to do the Beachy Head route in a clockwise direction, getting rid of the headwind early. After just a few miles, I realised that I really didn’t have that much energy. Thinking back, it’s was all down to the lack of carbs from the meals of the 2 previous days.
Tuesday, the weather was much better, the winds having died down quite considerably. After making sure I had a good carb meal the previous night, I went out to Bewl Water which turned out to be quite a nice ride.
Wednesday, again with those SW winds, I did the usual Beachy Head ride. With tail winds along the sea front, on the return, I ended up pushing some really good speeds. This was also the case for Sunday, with equally strong winds, although I did get my 2nd fastest time up Beachy Head. I suppose that’s the problem with living on the coast, although this year does seem to be especially prominent.
