I think so. Likely I'll be sitting on the trainer tomorrow morning. :(

Le Spit has the Jetblack Z1 Pro on sale ($265). Unfortunately they sold the last one this morning. There goes this weekends riding.

Gale force winds here at the moment, even if I did want to get wet.

Just got back from a shopping trip to Warringah Mall and the Bogandore was being blown around a bit.

It's been surprisingly clement out here . Light rain early, a bit heavier and then it eased off and only the occasional burst of wind, certainly nothing like what was forecast. I think other parts of the city are copping it but not us so far.

Power has just been restored in the last 40 minutes after a wild night in my part of the Northern Beaches.

Slept poorly with the TV antenna and guy wires making a racket in the wind for most of the night... :x

Pretty wild weather today. Some of the heaviest rain I've ever seen.

Flooded roads everywhere.

Lots of debris on the paths today. I avoided areas such as the bay run that are likely to still be under.

Otherwise a dry & pleasant ride in

Yep, same here very pleasant and glad I run mudguards for anti-brownstripe through puddles.

On the Epping Rd shared path the debris really kicked up a notch from Lane Cove West as far as my turnoff at St Leonards.

There is still a bit of debris around even after a week has gone. And very, very cold in the mornings. The windbreaker is packed away, the winter jacket is in use and the winter socks are nice and warm. :)

What winter socks do you wear? My feet were cold yesterday so I wore explorers today & my feet were still cold! Think I need socks or shoes that keep the wind out.

Very soft wool socks, and they are quite warm. :)

Maybe need this Toasti Toes. Might get smoke coming off feet. :) Would be better if it is re-usable but it might be smelly?

After the fingers come my toes, then knees.
I try to tackle all of them at the same time.
To keep out wind - use your wet weather gear ... overshoes are cheaper than shoes and can be used for both wet and cold.

Managed to get out for first decent ride in several weeks and avoid rain. Double bonus. Back home at 9am, buckets at 10am.

I was driving this morning at 7.30am when the car was telling me it was 3 degrees outside and I saw a surprising number of cyclists.
I take my hat off to you for your dedication and toughness. I waited until much much later before venturing out.

It was chilly, but not that bad. I went out around 9am to avoid the worst of the cold.
