Nevermind, I didn't even like riding in these 17-20 mph winds. Sucks, sun finally comes out and it's warm, but now this damn wind....

It can be tricky but it usually doesn't bother me unless i do alot of interstate riding.

But then again, the mountains cut down on alot of the wind where i live.

I live in Brooklyn and just went riding today. It was fine when you're on local roads but when I jumped on the highway, it got a bit scary at times so I just went back home...

Couldn't really say how windy is too windy....its what you are comfortable riding in (of course hurricane strength winds would be a little excessive :) ). The only time I get freaked is when I get a little toss towards another vehicle, not fun. Its good to have experience in bad conditions because you never know when you may have to ride through crappy weather.

We had a significant wind storm here yesterday (a big High pressure ridge with a serious cold front backfilling in a Low that was moving out).

I was teaching students to ride motorcycles in that wind. I had to shout to be heard over the wind. Oh well, at least it wasn't as bad as some wind storms where the cones actually get blown across the training area!!
