I feel cheated and angry!

Postby RobRollin » Mon Apr 12, 2010 10:41 am

Yep, I feel cheated two days in a row where I had a ride planned and the weather has closed in. 30mins later it fines up, at 6 this mornign it was blowing a gale and raining hard, by 7 it was fine again! Then at 715 when I was going to ride it started raining again!

Made the decison, Im going to ride no matter what, unless it's a storm or wind is over 35kmh/r. I rode all; through winter in some days very bad conditions and loved it.

I have been in the dressing gown all morning. The Nectarine tree wind gauge tells me that Carlton is a little calmer than it was this morning, however the Weather Bureau has a 72kph wind on the SE corner of the state. Dogs want to go to the beach. They will have to wait. I am about to dress in my cycling gear.

Rob, yeah fairly interested in a ride with the Dome group. Is it 6am at Dome on thursday? How good will my lights need to be? And what sort of speed do you guys average?

Ive been leaving about 6-630 from Cenotaph mostly.

Back home after 51km. Not cold, very comfortable. Stiff breeze. . Go tonight, it could be bad tomorrow!
