Riding in Crosswinds
Gusty winds tend to upset new riders because of the movement that happens when the bike gets hit with one. The newbie reaction is to take a death grip on the bars and try to fight the lean that happens.
In fact, that movement is just the self steering of the bike reacting to the sideways push of the wind by steering in the direction of the push which makes the bike lean into the wind and counteract it. This is exactly the self steering stability that keeps a bike "balanced" in normal riding without any input from you, the rider.
The correct response is just to maintain a relaxed grip on the bars and go with the flow. The bike will be fine, and so will you.
