On wind … and why it never blows from behind in NL!

The wind in The Netherlands is constant and relentless – especially if you ride a bicycle.  Often it is invisible – trees and blades of grass appear upright and stationary when the reality is that when a bike comes into play, headwinds make forward momentum a challenge, whilst cross-winds constantly buffet and blow.

The one thing the wind never, ever does, is blow from behind and speed you along – just look at the video – the windmill and I are both facing the same direction … The difference? Only one of us is harnessing the power of the wind …
