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.

+1000. Rode yesterday and didn't find it too bad (but stuck to the coast pretty much). Went for a walk/jog this morning and took 30 minutes to stop sweating when I got back.

I must be getting immune to the rain, did another century ride today which started off in the rain...had wet roads for the first 50-60ks, then the humidity kicked in for the remainder of the ride, thankfully we had a tailwind for the last 20.

Not looking good for the next couple of days though...more time for cleaning the bike :roll:

According to the BOM it looks like there will be little riding over the next few days.

What's the BOM got to do with whether we ride or not? :)

Can he give me a lift to work? ;)
Once you can climb hills on a bike it's all downhill. :mrgreen:

Hopefully I'll know what that's like..... one day. :shock: :lol:

Why??????
It would not be at all strange if history came to the conclusion that the perfection of the bicycle was the greatest achievement of the nineteenth century.

Need a snorkel at my place. Had 100+mm since early this morning. Roads around here have flooded in some places.

I had a great time on the ride in this morning. Made sure all the motorists could see my big smile as well. Got a big thumbs up and smile from the driver of a car in front of me at some lights :)

I really would like some waterproof overshoes though, the rest I don't mind.

^^ You're a harder arse than me mate. :lol: I walked the kids to school in the rain (they loved it) then jumped on the bus. Took ages in the traffic, but the time saved riding woulda been lost in the showers at work.
