Wind or Hills ...

Sunny, warm, dry - perfect weather to get out for a ride.  Unbelievable considering it was still January.  I headed out in high spirits for a rare winter outdoor ride.  In a matter of minutes I hooked up with a small group of cyclists also taking advantage of the sunshine.  It doesn’t get any better than this…

And then we turned - directly into a headwind.  A ride which was thoroughly enjoyable suddenly turned into miserable suffering.  This wasn’t a mid-summer hammer fest where you expect to struggle.  This was a take it slow, winter pace ride.  I desperately followed the wheel in front of me dreading my turn at that front.  I hate wind.

It got me thinking, what do cyclists hate more: wind or hills?  The common perception is that hills are the bane of cyclists.  With hills there is always a summit, a peak in which there is a sense of accomplishment.  With wind there is no peak, no triumph, just suffering.

So what's worse?  Hills or Wind?
