Finally (with lots of help and encouragement from a mate of mine) I rode from Melbourne to Bundoora, via CityLink and the Western Ring Road. It is definitely a run that I have to practice! One thing I noticed about today's ride was how windy it was. To deal with this I tried to keep my upper body relaxed (so I wasn't fighting the bike) and grip the bike with my legs and not grip the handlebars with a vice-like grip. I managed alright, legs were a bit sore at the end of it. Is this the correct technique to tackle the wind pushing you around? Also, if you notice another car/vehicle wants to change lanes to move in front of you, is it common practice to use the 'passing lights' or to flash your high beams to let them know it is safe/okay for them to go across? Ta!
