When is it to windy to ride?

For your abilities or just general comfort level, when do you think it is to windy to ride? Seeing as how this is my first full summer of riding, I find that almost the slightest breeze has me grabbing the grips a bit tighter on the road. I'm getting a bit more comfortable as I fine tune my balance, but when I see the flags snapping in the breeze out the window, I get a bit worried about my ride home.

Good question. WHen you're knee-dragging while straight-lining.... it may be too windy.

When debris knocks you into the next lane... it may be too windy.


Seriously though, I think it's a matter of what you're comfortable with. Gusts can be scary, moving you all over. I've had to lean my bike to keep it going straight in some Arizona dust storms.
