Today it was planned to get up north and Puerto Natales but the wind, sidewind from north west stoped me after 7 km cycling.The risk to get into a traffic accident was abvious. The weather foecast has promised better weather, less wind today but they failed completly. 18-21 m/s was what I had to fight against. So it was just turning back and facing a more easily cycled wind, hopfully tomorrow
