    Windy bike rides

    I'm hating the windy weather at the moment, its either giving me jolts of Adrenalin I could do without when a sideways gust catches my front wheel, or the headwinds are making flat rides feel like I'm battling hills! Any advise for riding in the wind, or is it just a case of getting used to it?

    Energy drink - anything less, er, windy than maltodextrin?

    I use maltodextrin in my drink bottle for long rides and it being pure carbohydrate, for a couple of hours after the ride I'm in discomfort with trapped wind and farting like a horse. Is there any carbohydrate that won't have this unfortunate side-effect?

    too windy for camping???

    We're currently in Cornwall camping and the wind over the past 2 days has been howling. How windy would you guys let it get before calling it a day and packing up? This is what we've had last night And we survived but not that I got much sleep!

    So you thought your windy commute was bad

    Spare a thought for these cyclists, attempting and mostly failing to complete a race in Benidorm against the head wind from hell. View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6YK9yNQLVo http://www.cyclingweekly.co.uk/videos/news/watch-riders-blown-over-by-strong-winds-race-abandoned...

    How much wind is too much wind?

    Several of my loops involve riding up and down the North East coast. As a general rule, if there is a headwind, it will be on the way back down. The question is how much wind is too much wind to venture out? I suspect like many of us, I usually check the BBC website. Up to 10mph can be...
