[QUOTE="Diogenes"]\nI was going to ride up to Katoomba today o pick up my new helmet\n(bought at a _real_ local bike shop), but after a few kms, I turned\nback, went home, and took the car instead. Why? The vicious wind\ngusts were trying to throw me off the highway.\n\n\n=================\n\nOnya bike\n\nGerry[/QUOTE]\n\nI was nearly blown off the bike while waiting for the lights to change in\nCivic, Canberra, on Tuesday evening. I was very scared as I was moving off.\nI have stayed off the bike substantially since. The weather forecast in\nCanberra for this coming Sunday is very windy.
