  Not only that...

but it's uphill both ways.

Yeah, it does seem that way at times, but I've cycled and paddled with strong winds at my back and you can definitely tell when winds are working in your favor. I was once pulled over for speeding on a rainy (wind assisted) day when I was a student for going 42 in a 25 MPH zone. Yeah, I was passing the cars, but I had no idea I was going that fast. I was just a rush to get home and in the shower.

The cop asked me, I kid you not, "Do you know how fast you were going?"

There were no cycle computers back then, so I just shrugged and said, "A bit faster than the cars." When he told me the speed, I laughed and said, "I had no idea I could go that fast." He wasn't pleased, but let me off with a warning.

Must have been my cute legs.
