A Conversation for Cycling into the Wind

Tall buildings can have a very pronounced influence on wind direction and where they act by funnelling it wind speed. However there tends to be calmer air nearer the building so the closer you cycle to the edge of the road the better - subject to normal safety constraints.

Yes indeed. Not only does the wind get funneled - if it's a crosswind then you have to brace yourself and start leaning when you reach the intersections. Then of course you fall over when you reach the next building.
