Constant wind isn't so dangerous so long as nothing big is blown around. I've tried riding into constant 60kph winds. I couldn't do it, but it wasn't dangerous, just frustrating.
I've tried riding a bike into 100+kph gusts. That was stupid alright- the first gust flipped the bike over and sent me tumbling down the road. My only defense is that I didn't realise how strong the wind was getting, and I took shelter after that.
This was in Patagonia, kind of a windy place.
