    Yesterday was a real treat here on Tyneside. Damp early on from overnight rain but virtually no clouds by lunch time I headed out. I have a slight case of ManFlu and had layered up and within 5 minutes I was thinking of heading back home for either the Wilier or the CAAD9 and to remove a layer. Opted not to in the end and pushed on but a nice ride nonetheless in much improved weather and riding conditions (one council has even resurfaced some of the roads! :shock:).

    Today was a stark reminder it is February. Overcast, a strong wind from the south with drizzle and soaking wet roads. Heading out after lunch and progressively switched more lights until I was lit up like a Christmas tree by 3pm. :(

    simonpieman, i'm in cumbria, it's raining and hilly. Forecast sun for tomorrow, so up early and get back for manchester derby
  • Felt like a spring day around Sheffield from 10 am until about 2 pm - fantastic! I took my jacket off about half way through my ride, although that may have been due to the exertion of climbing Winnats Pass :D
  • Was gorgeous today, got out and put some miles in and the sun was shining all the way :D. Cant wait for spring to kick in proper

  • Still snow on my commute - has been there since November!

    So looking forward to being back in shorts but that'll be a little while yet.
