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. :)
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:

I'll give you a wave on the way past. I'd join in & keep you company, but it's a rest day for me tomorrow. hehe

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.

Cheers

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 :)

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. :(

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).

Picked up a head cold this week, must have caught something from all the hill gasping last weekend, so the indoor trainer was dusted off for this morning. (Raining again :( ) We complain about the roads but the clock sure ticks slowly on that trainer.

+heaps. An absolutely brilliant day. I did a quick ~40Km ride this morning and it was lovely. A bit of debris on the paths, as you'd expect, but otherwise a great day.

Me too....the weather gods must have read my post in the 6k club about hitting 4000 this month if the weather played nicely.....clearly it's not playing along with me and I'll fall short :evil:

It's a wet season that is never ending......

Chose the WRONG day for only my second ever 100mile+ ride, 175k in atrocious cold and rain over a couple of mountains (coming down them of course only made it even colder). I'm finding myself pining for the drought to come back again, there was one year in the early '00s when we had 99 days without any rain. Can you just imagine how much riding you could get done with that!
