    Well mine’s a cx bike but definitely more so on the road, on the mtb it’s just slowing you down. On the road I just feel its dangerous.

    Not that sort but getting blown about on the bike.

    How do you cope, for me its the one thing that I really hate, to a degree I treat it as additional resistance training but when it gets blustery I often find it difficult to enjoy a ride as the wind grabs the front wheel and can make you deviate.

    I have a little ballast to help, certainly won’t get blown away.

    Sometimes just find myself cranking away as if I was going up hill at less than 10 mph.

    Must admit though I do quite well when the wind is behind me, its worst when it’s from the side as it’s unpredictable.

    I try to plan so it’s in my face out and at my back coming home.

    Equally hate it on the road. In general I head for the trees and go riding lower down in a wood or forest.
