I’ve did some trips lately, last weekend I went to Purmerend (42-ish km), and the day after that I biked in Almere for another 15km. Both were exhausting trips, because of a lot of wind. On my trip to Purmerend I had more than half of the trip the wind straight in my face, at about 5 bft.
If the weather is OK, I’ll be making more trips. It is time to get my condition back in order.
