IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT AVERAGE WIND SPEED: 
Since bicyclists do not want their average speed to be diminished when they come to a stop, the computer will only record and average when the wind is blowing.  It stops recording below approximately 1 mph.  That means that  if the wind blows for 2 hours at 20 mph and 2 hours at zero, the average shown will be 20, not 10!  Please keep this in mind for your desired use of the Vortex anemometer. 

WORKAROUND :  If you want to know the real average wind speed - even with spells near zero, do the following:  reset the computer, note the time.  When desired, simply divide the total number of wind "miles" on the display by the number of hours since reset.
