Lower temp but higher humidity and I am stuffed... I backed off going up cootha as I was sweating so much...I worked out I drank 2lt during the ride plus 1.5lt as soon as I got home and I still ended up losing just under 1kg in a 2.4hr ride

Glad someone else felt like this,
I went for a 2hr ride up Cootha and only took about 500ml with me. Definitely a rookie mistake :roll:

I hit up Mt Glorious just before Midday on Wednesday. Average temp for the whole ride came back in at 40 degrees. Drank 5.65L of fluid. (1x 600ml coke on the ride home and 2x 375ml soft drinks at the top. The rest was water). Demolished a 2L bottle of water when I got home :P Still the same weight as I was before..... like usual :lol: :lol:

The wind was punishing coming back across the bridge from Redcliffe and along Brighton foreshore, then all the way back to the Gateway Bridge. When I turned on to Lomandra Drive I was flat out holding 20kph.

How on earth can you do a circuit and have the wind blowing in your face the entire way, then go in the opposite direction and the same thing happens?

I see you have ridden along the Kedron Brook Bikeway where there is no such thing as a tailwind along there.

I was riding along the water front at Wynnum this morning, enjoying my ride and then all of a sudden, bam, wind out of no where. Seriously I swear it was calm one second and blowing a gail the next. I slept in this morning, so left home at 6am, an hour later than normal.

I often wonder the same thing. Doing laps and the wind can be hitting you from the freeway (easterly) and further round you're heading into it coming from the river (westerly), all within about 350m. It's not just skewed perception. You can see debris blowing towards you at both points if it's howling. I expect local geography is funnelling it somehow....or I've been very bad.

Often people I ride with don't notice tailwind as it's not as obvious as a headwind.

I notice when I have a tailwind. I ride faster because I'm so eager for the punishment of the return ride.

Cracker of a morning for Brookfield, had some protection from the winds while doing the three fingers, got a few sprinkles heading back to the showgrounds after Savages Rd....one of Brisbanes hidden gems out there!
Worst part was the gusty winds almost blowing me sideways crossing the Goodwill Bridge!
