Great weather - the warmth is lovely! :D Just loving it. Really enjoying doing 30 or 40km each evening. 8)

And despite the looks, there was actually no storm this afternoon in my area. :)

Not so great weather this morning, grey and rainy. :roll: Got rained on when leaving Prestons, but otherwise okay. :)

It was great fun riding with someone else on the way back, made the time go much faster. :D

What ever happened to "riding in bad weather automatically means you're a hardman". I was an epic hardman this morning. Did the loop solo for the Trek Rouse Hill slow ride around the base and back, and pulled an equivalent time including a lot more time above 45kmh than I was ever expecting... time for some better shoes, the stiffness from the wet shoes really helped pick up the pace despite being on the slow bike and in the wet. :x #5 :x

Overcast, just a couple of sprinkles in the east.
When it isn't forecasting storms I'll take my new bike out again :(

Yep! :D I like going out in wet weather (as long as it isn't thundering), all the pedestrian "meanderthals" are hiding away in their warm houses. :lol:

Beautiful morning for a two gorges cruise (Galston and Berowra Waters). 73km and plenty more in the tank but I had a time limit :(.
n = 3 for now

It was a great morning. I attempted to do M7 for a second day in a row. :lol: I was going well, making good time. Made it out to Prestons faster than before even despite the head wind. On the way back it all went wrong - made it to the Prospect Reservoir and then the left leg decided to cramp up. :oops: Time to call for the back-up car. Strange thing is I didn't feel tired or exhausted.

And now of course it feels fine a while later. :roll:

Slight chill, but beautiful as the sun came up over Olympic park.

Nice to not shiver in the first few mins of the ride this morning. No drops of rain (yet). fingers crossed it holds off! It did bring out the poor driving skills of some, but not even close calls will ruin my day :)

Good ride in this morning - realy nice weather. Happy to be riding today.

Will be swapping out the front wheel tonight as I have found slight cracks around the spoke holes :cry: - disappoining but I can't realy complain as the rim is 21 years old like the bike. I will be checking the rear as well.
Not fast, no style, but still get there.

You are so right - the bike is a Repco superlite purchased from Blackmanns cycles (in Blacktown)21 years ago and it came with 15 years warranty on components and a lifetime on the frame and forks - still have the documents. It is only just out of warranty with the component (less that 50% of the overall) do you think I should call them to see what they can do :lol: :D :roll: :lol:

They have been my LBS for over 30 years. 8)
