Hmmmm in Florida ..where it get dangerous is close to the ocean crossing the intercostal waterway on bridges made high enough for big boats to pass through ..when you get blown around there’s no place to go really ..skyline parkway over Tampa bay really bad too ...I’ve had some bad moments in severe cross winds
That sounds totally scary. I don't like riding on high bridges without any cross wind to begin with.
There is one tall bridge from my house to Long Beach. That is also really high for cruise and cargo ships.
The surface is steel grid so steering feels funny.
When Sonya and I rode back from the Big Sur camping trip two years ago, we crossed the bridge at Astoria, the Astoria-Megler bridge, and it was brutal as well. Hate crosswinds.
Have found with grated bridges that speed is your friend, something like riding the wing on gravel, keep the speed. When you slow down is when you have issues.
