Windy blows and Rosy cheeks
Surviving the wind and the rain? Why not cheer yourself up with our top pick from the Cyclechic Sale. The lovely Rosy Cheek Red Bensimon Rucksack is now only £44.25. Having this cheery little rucksack on your back will put a smile on your face and a spring in your pedal.
A few tips for cycling in windy conditions
1. Keep both hands firmly on the handlebars, this is no time to be doing 'look Mum no hands' tricks
2. Avoid flowing dresses & skirts and hats that could blow off (I once lost my favourite tribly cycling in windy conditions)
3. Get your head down and bring your elbows in so you have a smaller surface area facing the wind.
4. Bit cheeky but try cycling behind someone. Or cycle with a friend and take it in turns to lead the way and face the gales!
