Managed to do a 55k loop Friday afternoon but got caught on the way back home in the torrential rains....that was the worst ever.
Sunday was good with a 85k loop to new farm so happy with that..... Rest day today and another 55k in the morning but let's see if the rain is going to stay clear. Predictions are here to stay for the week :(

A great riding day today! It threatened to rain, but didn't. The day was a little humid to start with, but cooled down towards the end of my ride. 85Km of good times :D

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:

Surprisingly :mrgreen: the weather this morning was extremely bleak and wet looking.
Again.
Because i have not been on the bike for a week i insisted on riding to work, fortunately that is only 8 km.
MSO accused me of being a SB to contemplate bike riding in this weather

But i got to work relatively dry and comfy and minimal rear wheel lock-up. :shock:
Just gotta get home again though.

Well I didn't get as wet as I was expecting. Mental note to self - when going through deep puddles on Kedron brook slow down a little so the bow-wave off the front wheel doesn't fill your shoes :shock: :mrgreen:

[quote="fullsteamahead" Big snip
Haha, not quite, I tend to be out the door by 4.30/4.40 . I like to think I'm getting a superior return on my Ayup investment :D[/quote]

I also like riding early in the morning before sunrise. First up I think with blinking tail lights and a a good headlight that I'm more visible. Second is that the roads are quieter and those tradies that are out seem to be more polite and give me at least a half a roads worth of space when they pass.

Besides that, I have this superior glib smile on my face knowing that I'm on my way home when all the other riders are just staring to head out to face the madding hordes. :D

Interestingly between 5 and 6 it's known as tradie hour here. That's when I find there on their worst behaviour. The bogan/tradie doesn't like to be caught doing anti social stuff so the more people around the better they behave imho. Of course that small % of them are careless and inconsiderate at any time. :evil:

Far out, it is cold today. :( I'm sitting in my office wearing shirt, shorts, tracky dacks, jacket, beanie and socks and I'm STILL cold. I'm really looking forward to an early morning ride tomorrow :lol:

Hey! No venting unless you are riding :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I left work at 2 and was surprised to go out to wet road and threatening skies. I powered to Alderley, picked up off spring and was putting the bike on the back when it started raining again. It stopped by the time I got to school. WT??

It's still trying to rain out there and I'm debating whether to do my early Tuesday ride and get the bike covered in mud :(
