    I just rode from Porter Sq to Roslindale Sq and back. I swear no matter which direction I was going I had a doom(head)wind. Combined with the fact that I didn't sleep well last night, and was already feeling a bit sluggish, today was one of the worst feeling rides I've ever had. Fuckin' Sisyphus 'n' shit.

    But anyway, that reminded me of just HOW windy Boston/MA is compared to the rest of the US.

    Then, if we look at a smaller scale definition of "city," we get the below link. Note how MANY of the top 20+ are in the Boston area.

    ^^ Wind changes direction every 20 feet or so, headwind, sidewind, rarely behind you.....

    A bike with gears is good today.

    Last really windy days we had I got blown off my bike before a stop sign, stupidly had bike with aero rims too. Was just about to - wisely I thought - unclip as I knew a brief track stand wouldn't work in the wind and bang, the wind hit me, and the rims, over I went: it hurt.

    I dissent. It never changes directions. It just blows straight fucking AT you all the time, unless you're on the Mass Ave bridge. Then it blows equally straight at you, and from which ever side is going tross you into the #1 as it goes by!! :P

    Sorry to hear about your turbulent-toppling! We need to start a freakin' Occupy Wind movement. I'm sick of this shit. It's time to start taking action!All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.

    as a rider who weighs in at 120 wet, these windy days are particularly precarious. I often have visions of myself being flung into oncoming traffic or worse - the charles
