A cyclone is coming boys and girls. Time to buy that wet weather bike or a trainer and get as many kms while the sun is still sort of shining :P

In the meantime my commuter bike will see more action

My shoe covers turned up today (fast delivery!!) so it will be nice and dry tomorrow morning.

Sad thing is, I now actually want it to rain so I can give them a try... :)

Coottha was not too bad this morning...

Looking to the south-east, most of Brisbane except Yeronga area was under cloud or rain.

Splendid example of a brisbane pothole here...

These photos were taken at around 7am, later on in the day traffic congestion was severe, in part due to the weather conditions.

You call that a pothole? This is a pot hole :twisted:

Is the oil slick still there on the run back down the hill on Mt Coot-tha?

didn't notice the oil slick yesterday (similar time to elantra actually) but watch out for the pothole just before the 1km mark on the downhill.

woot! got a dryish riverloop in this morning. Glad too, as I put new bartape on last night and was rocking some new gloves. Old gloves and bartape had gotten too manky in all the rain we've been having.

Well that's good to hear. It was in patches every 10-15m in the middle of the lane and at "50kph" you cover that distance very quickly :P

Made hay while the sun was shining and went out for a lunch time River loop. Was smashing it till just before the Tennis Centre, then hit a head wind that seemed to persist all the way to Dutton Park and took alot out of me. Slowed me up until I caught a bit of second wind after Dornoch Terrace Decent then came home strong.

Were you doing 50km/hr or 50 mile/hr or something in between ?

On another note, the closure of the old road just downhill from where your photos are taken is a major PITA.
That was the much more pleasant descent route and very popular for training purposes by club riders.

Elantra, I can't believe how wrong your brake lever set up is. Get a protractor, man!
