Not bad weather today. Not bad tonight either - relatively warm too. If my lights didn't decide to give up - the conditions were perfect to grab a couple of KOMs I'd been hunting for a while.

Beautiful sunday it has been. I was out at 6-45 this morning to the M7 and back. Damn my feet got cold though! I had to stop at the northern end of the M7 and sit and rub my toes for 10 minutes to get some life back into them. I think i need some shoe covers to keep the cold wind out. Gloves and beanie worked for my ears and fingers :D

Brrrrr! Coldest day for a ride this year. Around 5 deg when I started. Once the sun was up it was pleasant albeit a little windy.

Looking cloudy and it is cold. Written from the comfort of a CityRail S-set silver rattler. :roll: freezing cold.

The weather for the rest of the week and weekend is looking like cold and rainy. :(

Heavy rain yesterday morning prompted me to leave the bike at home. This morning, however, was very pleasant. Cool enough at 9 deg, but dry roads and light overcast skies. I prefer this, as there are a few spots on my commute when it's hard to see (and be seen) when the bright morning sun is low in the sky.

Damn it was cold this morning! I go down to prestons and back just ahead of a rain shower. Bit of a head wind too.

It is pouring down at the moment and expected to continue like that too.

I did about 30km this morning in absolutely beautiful weather. :lol: I think I ended up looking like I'd crawled through mud.

I now have feeling back in my fingers! The bike needs a big cleanup. The rain wasn't so bad - just lots of standing water.

Actually, it wasn't as bad as the forecast warnings suggested. I managed a 3 hour ride
between 9 am and 12 today to Olympic Park, with not a spot of rain. Even had
a little sunshine. Roads and paths were seriously wet for most of the ride, but I
didn't get wet. Not surprisingly, cyclist were pretty scarce - didn't see anyone else
til around 11:30 when sun had come out.

Hoping tomorrow will be even better :D

Oh go away! :cry: :lol: way to rub salt in the wounds. ;)

It's looking okay at the moment - I can see a bit of sun to the west, but a lot of cloud too. Might be possible to go for A ride tonight actually.

It's who dares wins. You have to smite mother nature. Show her you're ready to take the worst she can deal out. Anything left in her locker makes you the winner :grin:

Yeah I didn't go anywhere tonight either. It is now bucketing down, with the neighbours leaking gutter sounding like an enormous waterfall. :roll:

Bit it is perfectly dry while I'm at work - absolutely evil weather. It's forcing me to get my cycling fix through other ways, namely indoor - which I hate.

I was up at 0400 and was so excited that it wasn't raining nor windy that I got out on the bike. Not a drop and still. Pretty good conditions considering the recent weather.

Heavy rain earlier this morning - but it seems like there is a brief pause in the rain at the moment.
