Posted on route - UHR Harding Wind Terror


UphillRider65 --  A very difficult morning ride, started early to beat the heat but wasn't expecting the WIND. Got blown down 3 times by insane blasts of wind, once was blown 30-40 feet down the fire road, in the air, being hit by a head-on gust. A few spots had to hike the bike around a corner into the wind, the bike was being lifted off to ground by 50-60 mph gusts. Got to the last sharp turn before the top on the main climb and the wind was nonstop, decided it would be best to head back down. Very glad the wind had calmed down a bit, made it to the bottom with out any more injury. Have quite a few nasty scrapes but nothing serious. I have ridden in bad wind before but nothing quite like this.

Glad you made it down OK. Not to sound insensitive but did you have the camera rolling for this ride?

Sorry, no GoPro going on this ride, and at times the bike was a kite.
