    Why is it that whenever I am in the need of my drug the most, the EVIL DEVIL WINDS come and suppress my right to ride! Sometimes I think the evil winds are even racist against me because I am white. I hate, hate, hate, the DEVIL WINDS! I demand justice damn it! Maybe tomorrow. :mad: Any body else have this me to experience? To bad we can’t join forces and vote these winds out of here!

    The Devil's Breathe is bothering us here in L.A. and Ventura Counties as well.

    Poor Ventura County has a quite a wildfire going on right now around Newberry Park, absolutely wind driven.

    I was telling my friends the other day that "hate" is a form of "love", the "love to dislike".

    The winds were STRONG tonight. Very strong up on the East-West ridges. It was blowing so hard I could not keep my field glasses still.

    I’m with ya @hill^billy. The wind is my worst enemy and when I’m outside for too long during it my respiratory system and sinuses get all out of whack. With recent burn areas surrounding us here it’s especially bad with fire ash being picked up by the winds. I can take the wet and cold no problem but I melt in the devil winds like a little snowflake. I don’t give two sheets if macho dudes tell me to suck it up, it is unhealthy to ride in and makes me feel like garbage so they can have it.

    Santa Ana winds really are the devil, last time I rode in heavy SA conditions I was out at Black Star and just after finishing the ride the surrounding hills and mountains were in flames and we had to evacuate our home that night.

    Life is full of choices.. a few Monday’s ago I had the day off and planned to ride but the wind was insane so I chose to ditch my ride plans and spent the day with my daughter instead. Riding on my day off is not my job so a bit apples to oranges comparison to embracing it and rolling on.

    I cleaned pools, detailed cars, parked cars, and worked construction to pay my way through college. Some of that was in Boston which has some pretty shitty weather. I didn’t chose to not work because the winds blew crap into pools or it was snowing or hot outside, I went to work.

    I also have an autoimmune disease that I give myself shots for quarterly and one of the side effects is issues with fighting off infections. This means that if I get a lung infection, pneumonia, or any other attack on my immune system I can be in big trouble and my kids could grow up without a dad. But I get it, we are hardcore mountain bikers and saying you don’t like a certain type of weather condition is just being a pussy. :thumbsup:

    Humm, so now I’m a pussy hater? You don’t know me! I don’t hate those at all, in fact I love them! Did you know there is a song about those things by Pig Vomit? Look it up, it’s funny! As for being a pussy, I sucked it up today and rode in the wind only because it wasn’t quite as devilish as it was yesterday! Riding in 50mph winds makes you a stupid man, but a man non the less. I try not to choose stupid, but sometimes it happens cause I’m human.

    Humans are indeed stupid.. as for macho mentality, this old song from my high school days reminds me of those dudes.

    Short in the front, long in the back!
