Saturday & Sunday:

:shock: 25 degrees in some parts of Scotland - even as high up as Inverness!

Eastern parts of the UK could see up to 30 degrees! :shock:

Tomorrow will have temperatures up to 18 degrees, but with showers.

Friday is supposed to be completely dry, with temperatures up to 25.

:D Finally!

...so get out and ride! 8)

    Off to Wales this weekend to visit friends, so will hopefully get some hills in :-)
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    23 degrees for MCR apparently.

    Problem is, as usually, going to be windy.

    Yeah, I wish I was going now! :o

    Even if those figures were negative numbers, it would be warmer than it has been today - bloody freezing! :x

    ...yet, 2 days ago, it was sunny and really warm up to 11pm! :?

    Excellent! My last exam is on Thursday - oh noes! That's tomorrow. Better get studying. So, aye ... definitely about all weekend. :D

    Although ... I think I'm going to Fife on Friday night. Might see if I can get my friend to buy a rack for his car and bring my bike. :lol:

    Better than today, that's for sure. It was freezing. I had to wear a jacket. :shock:

    Do you live in a tent? On Google map it appears there is nothing there :?:

  • BhimaBhima Posts: 2,145
    Just been out for a quick spin - the sky looked the most dire shade of grey imaginable, as if it were going to rain.

    Hot as hell though! I was cycling with my jersey unzipped the whole time! :shock:
  • White LineWhite Line Posts: 887
    Let's just hope the sky clears then. :D

    Hopefully might get in another 100 miles on Sunday.

    Looks good, and probably more reliable than last week's forecast...
    Forecast looked lousy for the northwest highlands for most of last saturday, but there was clearly better weather coming in later; the forecast consistently showed clear skies coming in at about 5pm. So we timed our departure for the Bealach for then, only to have cold, hard rain and a nasty headwind on the climb. Eventually the rain did clear and the sun came out - literally the minute after we arrived back at the car.

    FANTASTIC. I've been waiting for weather like this :D

    Tomorrow, 636Sean and myself will be pootling around the north Pennines and on Saturday I'm off to Edinburgh for a Gentleman's Away Day and added to which is the 1st round of the Nocturne Series, in Edinburgh.

    What be nicer than sitting ouside a pub in the Grass Market watching everyone else get all hot and sweaty whilst we cool ourselves with an ice cold pint :wink:

    Low wind / No wind please - that'll do nicely :)
  • BhimaBhima Posts: 2,145
    Monday looks good, with that ESE wind - means i'll get a tailwind on my favourite downhill bit! :!:

    63.5mph is the target to beat. :D
  • freehubfreehub Posts: 4,257
    Where did you hit 63.5mph, I've never encountered any downhills capable of allowing that, not even cat and fiddle.
  • BhimaBhima Posts: 2,145
    A54 going towards Blaze Farm.

    If you look at it on a map, you'd think an ESE wind would result in a headwind, but the odd geography of the hills creates a weird turbulence, causing a tailwind. :D

    It also means that wind in virtually any other direction causes a headwind though. :(
  • freehubfreehub Posts: 4,257
    ESE would = a tailwind, on the weather when it is ESE its coming from the ESE.

    Actually, I got to 52 today on the Cat & Fiddle - there's an amazing stretch which does allow it, but it's not where you would expect, because it's on the way up to the top, from the Macclesfield end. Most of the time, I would use that bit for recovery, before the next uphill bit came but I was taking it easy today so decided to let rip!
