I went biking yesterday and had a great ride of about 32km. With the river levels up most of the local trails in the city are under water and here in Winnipeg it’s pretty flat on the roads. However, with a 40+ kph: wind you can really get a workout when you’re riding into it! This is something I refer to as a “Prairie Mountain”. It may be flat, but a long hall into a stiff headwind can seem just as hard as climbing a mountain trail.
