I got a dry 30k in this morning, can't say the same about the 60k yesterday.

I didn't know what to do with myself after the ride this morning as I didn't have to wash the road grime off or lubricate the chain.

Man I did a couple of laps of the Cootha this morning.. it was hot.

Came home, mowed and I am a ball of sweat! It's 33.2 now but the apparent temp is nearly 38! :shock: :mrgreen:

The heat.... oh my god, the heat. I've been sitting on the deck pouring water over my head to get some relief. BOM claims it'll be a touch cooler tomorrow and cooling down the rest of the week. I hope the weatherman is right for once!

At 5am on Cootha it was sort of cool..... but when I got home at 8am it was revolting. And then got worse.

Good idea getting there early. My group met at 6:30 at JC Slaughter and started then. I think I got home just before 9 and she was getting pretty warm. 3 water bottles on the ride plus about a litre when I got home. :shock: :shock: I think the bacon and eggs afterwards wasn't the best idea :roll:

At 4:30am the weather radar was clear so we rolled out at 5am, was a bit of drizzle and then the cold rain.

It was almost like an English summer day!

Clean bike is clean no more, and the wet weather gear had stayed home....

Bring on winter i say, have to be the best time of the year in Brisbane.


I never take them off the bike. Summer they are set to flashing, Winter (last week) set to constant at least for the start. But that's usually 4:40am for me.

Never seen a Christmas tree hit by a car: light up everyone. :wink:

Yaay well done. :)

I saw a dude riding in with no shirt on today and thought that was a good idea in this rain. Took me 1:10 on the bus - 40 minutes longer than the ride :(

I rode to work this morning. Mudguards and fat tires made it a breeze. I wore a rain jacket and fast drying shorts.

Correct me if i am wrong but RockVegas is not noted for having moderate climate.
Oldtimers in Queensland used to talk about the "Gladstone line", north of which was considered "too hot" for non-indigenous habitation :shock:

It is ok temperature wise, but we are in a bowl with mountains surrounding and a river through the middle of town. Doesn't make for a cool dry city!

Not enough breeze and too much humidity! Very nice during winter though.
