Welcome... as for your question;
1. Tuck down as close to your bike as possible (this reduces the surface area the wind will push against).
2. Stay light on the handle bars (You will crash from over-correcting in a panic rather than from a gust itself).
3. If the wind is steady just lean into it like you would if you were walking.
4. Trust your bike (combined you and your bike probobly weigh over 600lbs, it's gonna take gale force winds to move you enough to knock you over).
This is just my advice gleaned from my little bit of experience riding in the High Desert and racing at Willow (Will-blow) Springs. After getting used to getting hit by 20mph gusts as you are tipping in to T8 at WOT you tend to not mind the little gusts on the canyon rides.
