When I left home all was calm, 2 km down the road the fit hit the shan. The rain came down in buckets and a violent cross wind came in bursts. The rain I could cope with but the bike felt really bad when hit with the wind. I don't remember wind ever having such an effect on the bike as that, maybe in the old days I was riding a much heavier bike. I can't think of any other reason, can anyone else? I intend going up in bike weight by 60 kilos soon, will that make much difference? I hope so, that was pretty bloody spooky.
