    You are not alone in the cold. Here across the big pond in Toledo, Ohio we are having
    a lovely mix of snow, ice, rain, freezing rain, wind, and cold. Just makes you want to get out and ride(not).

  • Pretty cold for you then Dennis! Whats the degree reading like for you? We are on about 0 to -1 and we start moaning, I have a small feeling you might get a fair bit lower than that!

    Bought my Pikes today for my build.

    Hello guys. Cold very COLD got man flu aswell so no riding over the weekend!! Any quick fix remedies?
  • Sweat it out batch, all you can do. Wrap up in some silver foil, turn the heating up, drink brandy and sweat!

    Hadn't been on the bike for a week due to work and other commitments till this morning. I'd convinced myself that it was fffffreezing and got dressed for bear- balaclavas, base layers/fleeces, lining gloves you name it then sweated like a censored all the way to work!
    Will be wearing less on the way home lol

    Sweat sweat sweat - I agree. To help things along, you could have a tin of Stagg Chilli, Dynamite flavour! Now let me tell you, if your cold doesn't fly out of your ars* on fire after that nothing will shift it!

    You need to get a pin out and perform some surgery on it hehe
  • Not a prayer of that happening. I normally would but this is in such a place, it makes my eyes water up even if I move my nose about, its very bad.

    At 29 I thought I'd seen the end of them. But oh no.

    Think I might go for a game of snooker this evening. Watching Ronnie has rekindled the snooker spirit! Will dust the bat down and have a bash.
