Should add in the little sprint up Clear Mountain to see what's left in the legs on that 20 degree climb :lol:

That was fun going through the mud, just not looking forward to cleaning off the muck!

Haha, indeed. I went through the mud just after the pathway was first reopened on the roadie and then spent 10-15 minutes just clearing the brakes a couple hundred metres up the path. It got to the point where I considered dipping it in Kedron Brook because none of the taps worked :lol:

The January weather has been really bad here by the looks of it.
I just got back from 9 days in NZ so i missed some of it.
I got up to go for a ride this morning and as if on cue it started to rain.
I don't mind riding in light rain but i dont like cleaning mud off my bike so i think i will walk the dog instead.
Anyhow here are some images of the weather South island NZ las weekend. ( Queenstown/Lake Wakatipu areas)

Did anyone else get dumped on this morning, or did that little black rain cloud just follow me from bowen hills to gardens point?

was closer to 8 for me - wet through three layers - perhaps not dumped on, but more than a shower :)

What's with all this wind in the past few days ?
B. nuisance on the bike - you crest a hill and have to change down, or in one instance this morning had to change into the big ring going up a hill with the wind behind.
The temps may be more reasonable, but the humidity is still too high !

Gee, sounds like you were lucky, I never get it behind always a stinking headwind. Thinking of starting a wind farm it's been windy for so long.
