The coldest winter morning ever and boy did we feel it, at the bottom of Bobbin my Garmin recorded 0 degrees. My toes were numb most of the trip to the 4 Gorges. Still managed a decent 136km with almost 1800m of climbing :)

Recovery is going well, back to my peak power :)


Think I'll stick to Zwift for winter.

Fresh.

Stopping for two coffees afterwards was a bad idea, the half a lap around centennial park back to my car was seemingly colder than the ride itself.

Average temperature of 2 degrees. Brrrrr.

Blimey - did it bucket down tonight. And did I get caught in it... :( Awful.

Crosswind to go with it too.

Well the gale force winds were fun. I was almost blown off the bike three or four times. :shock:

What happened to the howling westerly that was forecast to blow me all the way in to work? Probably waiting for the trip home.

beautiful day to be out!

is it a porsche club day today? must've seen at least 20 of them on the road just this morning.
3 of the GT3's were screaming through the M2 beecroft tunnel side-by-side one on each lane ... *$%# .. left me partially deaf. not impressed.

Hmm, GT3s.. How about an orange McLaren 12C (upgraded to 650S engine spec)? Near split my eardrums with its V8 roar. :shock:

About the only thing notable today aside from nearly getting blown over by a howling crosswind. Damn it was windy this morning, still is. :shock: Great fun though. :)

Wosers it was windy on the way in this morning - strong enough I noticed the cross wind & not just the headwind. As usual, never noticed any tailwind :wink:

so true. i was hitting 50 on my 13kg flatbar on the M2 (thinking i was seeing the benefits of some added commuting training .. :lol: .. before i realised it was the tailwind).
the same headwind on the return journey at 2pm, when the winds were at their peak, made the Pennant Hills Rd off-ramp a real struggle :roll:

The morning commute was great, and the afternoon was painful on the M2 and pretty much every other road until I got to my driveway. Headwinds and crosswinds only in the afternoon.

Lovely weather today, no winter gear needed for the early morning start. Really nice. :)

Damn the headwind later on in my ride. A group decided to latch on to my wheel after I passed them - okay, that's fine, but you are going to have to work for it. Man that was hard work trying to stay on 35-38km/h with that headwind. Tailwind on the way back, but I was pretty exhausted by then.

Nice day for 150km. :)

And again today as well it was roasting hot. I actually started to cramp up a tiny little bit near the end of my ride, which normally never happens (it is super rare). I'm guessing I just didn't drink enough - soon as I drank a bit more, it seemed to stop.

thought i would give cottage pt a go .. hot, muggy .. why not add some elevation?

I did a big ride yesterday (220 odd) and ended up 5km from home a blithering mess. Had to get rescued I was in such a bad state - severe headache, nauseous, couldn't drink, lightheaded. Ahh, fun times....

Aw carp, was about to head home when I saw the Bureau of Meteorology has issued a severe weather warning.

Hopefully I will avoid the hail on the way home

I look on their radar ... http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR713.loop.shtml#skip

Lots of stuff coming through in batches with clear bits in between. Shelter in the bad bits and ride in the good? Good bits look to be 45 minutes wide.

Good luck.

45 mins wide didn't help when riding into it - managed to avoid the worst though fortunately

I did two hours on a trainer inside, the temperature was fine. It was hard work though. ;)

It's just silly going out at 6:00am or earlier in the freezing cold, it's just not worth it. I'm being super careful ahead of going overseas in trying to avoid getting sick.
