I blame BOM for being useless more than anything. Showers. Shower or Two. Possible Showers. Morning showers. I mean geez if there is a going to be cloud in the sky they will just say something with showers, which probably ends up being a blue sky clear day.

I'm waiting for the venting to begin. :mrgreen: I'll check back after I've ridden home ;)
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:

Mondays forecast was for gale force winds, heavy rain & low temperatures from Thursday onwards. One out of 3 aint bad, it's f--f--f-- cold.

I second that - it was a damn sight warmer at 6am this morning than what it is now. I shudder to think what it will be like tomorrow morning. On the bright side - I'm not in Stanthorpe. It was only 4C there at 5pm this afternoon.

Hi,
Are you sure it's cold? Wife and I went for our ride this morning and it was freezing, thought our finger tips were going to drop off, what makes it worse is that it's only her 2nd ride back after her broken ankle healing up enough for walking etc so the rides are fairly slow with a few stops on top of the hills.

It was great to get home and have a hot shower.

Cheers

I dunno... I just rode home and it's actually only 1deg cooler than when I left this morning at 5am. Granted it's the first time I've ever worn knee warmers in the afternoon... but the back of the jersey is wet with sweat...

I'm off to the mountain at 5 tomorrow.. I think that might be a test of my cold weather gear. :) I'll report in. :)

I'm almost happy to have a flu/cold so not able to ride, its damn cold at the moment, not that I wouldn't ride normally in this weather, but I cannot risk getting any sicker.

A long weekend and it's meant to rain :roll:

I can tolerate riding in the rain when it's 25-30 degrees, but not in 8-17 degrees...who stole our sunshine and the mild winter weather that is supposed to be here??

Standard jersey with wind jacket for me but I tend to push it hard to warm up. Probably why I posted my quickest commute ever going home just to keep warm. Decided to ride up to Mt Toohey as an extra boost on my way home.

Must admit quite cold starting off.

Very sensible decision there. Clearly the wise thing to do. In fact even when you think you're better you're probably well advised to give it another few days.

Oh and I just overtook you in the ACF commuter challenge :)

Image now you're tempting me to update my records, I have about 2 weeks data to enter into the ACF challenge because I've been a bit slack.

You're not kidding. You need to do about 500km every week next month to catch up to your goal. I don't know how you live with yourself :roll:

Now on a brighter note, the sun is shinning, the birds are chirping & the sky is a nice shade of blue.

Think I'll get out the chainsaw & do my thing for the environment by removing that big ugly hard wood stump in the yard & topping up the fire.

Meh... It was a bit chillily I'll admit. However, the only shivering I did was just as I left home, and then at the garage afterwards! I actually had to unzip my jersey for cooling going up the hill. :mrgreen:

Nice weather for cycling in brissie this morning, well nice with a head warmer on. :D
But now that I'm home again it's damn cold.
And might get worse tomorrow.
Might have to go under the house and see if I can find that heater that I think is hiding somewhere... :idea:

Well big brave macho Steve is typing this from the doctors surgery waiting room hoping for some tamiflu.

Looks like it got me. :(

Yeah, studies and illness have taken their toll on my 10k year goal, not sure I'll even make 6k this year.

Wish I still had my fireplace at home, really missing it ATM.

It was a wee bit chilly heading out, but not so bad once I got going. Even flogging myself uphill I didn't get hot enough to take my warmers off - and I'm glad I bought some full fingered gloves. Still nice even now, though a little gloomy (and the rain is closing in on the radar).

Yes, that's cold, even by southern standards that's a sit by the fire day!!

I'm missing my combustion fire that I had back in Adelaide right now....thank goodness for the reverse cycle air :lol:

Here's hoping the rain passes quickly and the sun returns!

Just as bad out here in the country today. Cold wet and miserable. Hoping it stops by the morning so I can get out early for my weekly zipp down the highway.

+1 I'd made a small gain but I didn't do much even on the weekend :roll:

At least the wind has settled, hoping to get out in the morning!

Please bring back the sun!

S'morning was pretty good actually. Only needed one baselayer and only skidded on one manhole cover.

Sure beats getting on a trainer, and most cyclists are off the roads. Lets hope it stays dry(ish).
