Week 124: Cycling through Wind Farms

Week 124. Cycling through wind-farms. We are at the narrowest part of Mexico right now: only 200 Km between Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Even though there is a mountain range in the middle, the wind is coming from Atlantic coast and blowing here on the Pacific coast like crazy. Smart people built many wind-farms in this region. Luckily to us, we get mainly tail winds, but the wind direction changes multiple times per day and cycling through the howling wind is not as easy as we wished it to be. Our week looked like this: Day 1 to 4 – waiting for strong winds (up to 120 km h) to die out; Day 5 to 7 – actually cycling. Up next: climbing back to the mountains and none of us is ready for that!
