    Had to leave bike today, cricked my neck.... its agony, could hardly look round last night on the bike on way home, not really the best. Weather awful this morning, partially flooded roads and delayed trains....

    No rain for me this morning but the wind had swung round from yesterday. Unless I have a repeat of yesterday when the wind had dropped by the time I went home, I'll have a headwind tonight as well :?

    I'm being a wimp today and not cycling. Not so much because of the rain but the supposed 30mph winds that will no doubt take great delight howling over the open fields and blowing me all over the road.

    Very dry today, just wind, I thought on the straight to college I'd have a tailwind, but it felt more like a cross/headwind :(, I got to college, looked at the trees, and they where blowing in the direction I came, it should have being a tailwind, now I'm going to have a headwind on the way home too >:(
  • bone dry and howling a gale Oldham to Manchester this morning.

    looking dark and satanic in Clayton now and very windy.

    I'm picking young un up from school on his bike later. I think we'll be very drowned by then.

    It's not an exact science this meteorology game, although I did say the North West and there has been massive flooding in Cumbria!

    Anyway I hope it misses us out for a bit longer as I can't afford overshoes at the moment.

    I had to buy a new front light today, my brackets both died on the others, gutted as they are great lights, I was looking at overshoes and MUST make them my next purchase, Decathlon had some in at £20

    BTW glad im not riding today, its nasty out
