.....Sense those days I've read (but never tried) that if you hang your knee outward away from the bike on the windy side it is supposed to reduce the effects.I don't know if it is true or not.
I was just going to say this. If you leave your knee hanging out towards the side the wind is coming from, it creates enough drag to offset the crosswind. Living in Wisconsin, this technique was very effective against strong cross winds riding across the plains. This trick seems too good to be true, but it works VERY well.Scottie
i don't have a problem with bridges so far but about two months ago i was blown off the road and onto the footpath by the angryst wind i've ever felt. it was like a mini cyclone roaring through the city,people were clutching poles, umbrellas and street signs went flying several innocents were killed on the other side of the city were killed by a brick wall that was blown down. i can tell you honestly my knees were flapping but it didn't help.!
