I Need to Become a Better Wheelsucker…

by Chikashi


There is an unprotected stretch by the Western Scheldt in the Dutch south where it is always windy. And, it’s always a headwind, never a tailwind. Yesterday, whoever makes the wind up there obviously had a row with the wife the night before. It was hard work making the pedals go round even whilst hiding in the back.

Just after this stretch, at about halfway through our jaunt, we took a short break, and one guy commented that we had a bit of tailwind back there.

A collective (o_O) Wot?

Obviously, my wheelsucking skills are not up to snuff. I’m not a very good cyclist and thought that wheelsucking was about the only thing I do reasonably well. So much for that then…
