Howling Winds on the Altamont Pass

Absolutely howling winds on the Altamont made for a very fast ride out but a real grind home. Weather was overcast and cool and it just started to rain in the last few miles. I rode pretty steady all the way round. Not a nice day for a ride but I was thankful of the Bacchetta on the massive headwind stretch.
