Morning scumbags,

This morning could be the first windless ride of the year and the first dry ride that doesn't end up at work.

It's the little victories that count.

    Just started raining here - been waiting for missus to get back from the Gym before going out. That hilly ride on the best bike will be replaced by a flatter ride on the fixed work bike (with guards)

    An absolutely fantastic cycling day in the Midlands today. Mild for the time of year, dry roads, little wind and constant sunshine. Great training ride with good company. Superb.

    Well, that was good.

    Fifty fairly windless miles. Result.

    Got soaked though.

    Accuweather read 35mph+ gusts for here today so I went out with a little trepidation. Although my Allez hit 60kmph with absolute ease at one point and there was no wind!

    Wasn't cold either,pleasantly mild in 3/4 bibs

    No rain here and not much wind, but an excellent 77 mile group ride to the Vale of Belvoir :)

    Did you get back though? Or did you just stop at the Mucky Duck and call it a day?

    Did a nice 57 miles in the sunshine this morning from Portsmouth out to Chichester, Peterfield and Wickham. Got a bit warm and finished the ride in my long sleeved jersey, not hat of gloves, in January !!!

    Lovely day down here, but unfortunately the Mrs has had me trapsing round John Lewis' spending £1100 of vouchers (which we were given when we got married) !
    :(

    Well, quick 26 miles in the hissing rain - the fixed was out though. Shoes eventually soaked, and my smarts are drying out on the radiator. Only a few other nutters out in South Manchester. Really didn't want to watch United get battered again - whoop - they won - must try this more often.

    Perfect conditions for a ride on the Cheshire/Shropshire/Clwyd border... if you weren't knocking the hell out a house that you'd just bought. D'Oh. But at least I got a 60-miler in yesterday (in [email protected] head-winds with a puncture thrown in for good measure).

    Felt fantastic getting a ride in without howling winds for a change, noticed the difference in performance too!

    Don't expect it will last long...however can't really grumble, this winter has been fantastically kind compared to the last.
