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......

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??

12months and a couple of weeks later and nothing has changed....so.over.this.rain. :roll:

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!

Couldn't find my flippers this morning so didn't ride.

Cold is OK, but cold wet and dark? Only for Tasmanians. Or Melbornians.

it's weird being nearly the only cyclist on the bikeway.. I still prefer riding in the rain to catching public transport.

BOM says a shower or two tmrw, then sunny skies for sat/sun :D

Another wet week in Bris.
Very ethereal on Mt Coot-tha today, fog and mist in abundance.
Did see 3 cyclists mid-morning, one walking in the rain, one fixing a puncture in the rain, and one with dual suspension and no such worries. :D

I got really excited this morning when i saw the fog as fog normally means a clear day.
As I wait for a Job to appear (currently unemployed) I was going to go out to Bunnings on the bike and drool over what i can't afford at the moment. Dame rain
They say it might be cloudy tomorrow, I hope :lol:

Today was the coldest I can ever remember riding in: 2.8 degrees apparent/4.3.

And the river loop was deserted at 5am. But a beautiful day never the less.

Very cold Bayside today. Headed out at 5.15, had complete body numbness by 5.17!! I guess this is the price we pay for these sensational clear sunny days.

Minus 6 yesterday in ACT. There were still some of us out riding. My water in my bidon froze.

I dream of a warm and balmy 1 degree.

I leave my wind jacket on the hanger.

Extra base-layer is much more useful - I don't end up feeling like a roast chicken in a bag.

I don't wear it often, but appreciate it on conditions like today.
Mine is extremely breathable so I don't overheat.
