Slightly intimidating weather conditions yesterday. HOT and WINDY.
Made it a bit of a challenge going up the mountain. :?
Because of the wind, the view had better than average clarity for a summer's day.

It got to 35 north of Samford. The lowest my GPS got to was 37 in the shade at Samford/Upper Kedron. IIRC Brisbane recorded 33 and Ipswich got to 34. Gatton got to 36. Still got slowly cooked riding on the heat reflective road. Had a laugh when rocks stuck to my wheel :lol:

The weather has been quite pleasant here in Noosa. We rode the Boreen Point, Pomona, Cooroy, Noosa circuit early this morning. Even the climb in Louis Basso Drive didn't get me too sweaty. But we'll be back in Brisbane for the weekend.

Awesome photos. :D
Weather was typical lousy christmasday heat in Brisbane western suburbs.
Bad enough to make you feel distinctly lethargic and cranky but not bad enough to whinge about.
Slight breeze out of doors with a few obligatory christmas blowflies :D but also some mossies :(

Yes it was very nice this morning - well until about 8am anyway.

In fact conditions for road cycling were about as good as it gets, early this morning.
Basically there were hardly any cars around where i was riding.
Surreal. 8)

Quite a difference after 2 days.
much the same ride, http://www.strava.com/activities/101879702
Accompanied by some of the Raturday group.
More cars and more humidity = more effort and more concentration required to do the same result :?

Perfect conditions the last couple of days, the rain helped reduce the humidity and the cloud cover yesterday provided shelter from the sun for almost the entire ride.
I actually had ppl complain about being cold, who would have thought.
