Did my 60 miles this morning in freezing rain and gusting winds. Now I'm home the sun's come out and and wind's gone.

It's Not Right, I tell ya.

    40 kph winds and a sandstorm visibility of 50-100m - dont suppose cycling tomorrow will be a possibility

    There is this fabulous new thing you can use to plan your weekend ride

    It's called the weather forecast :D

    I am well and truly addicted to it! While not 100% accurate all the time it's pretty damn good. The wind forecast is good too. I (nearly) always have a tailwind to push me home!

    Today, delay ride until after 9am. Broken cloud turned into beautiful sunshine by 11. I actually felt the warmth of the sun. Sweet!

    How about the "look out the window, is it lashing down? No! Bike ride then" method. It comes into its own now that the mornings are actually light around 0630, but I grant you this method is not much cop in the winter months when the morning is almost half over before it is bright enough to see.

    What do I ride? Now that's an Enigma!

    Haven't been out due to right arm being in a sling after going ar$e over handlebars on mtb on Friday causing a separated shoulder :(
    Hope it feels better next weekend, I've got a tour planned, on the road though. Bloody mtb's are dangerous!

    She is contracted to be the purveyor of doom, whereas the 'blonde' with godawful dress sense has in her contract never to be involved with the stuff that the BBC bosses make Eno contend with.... she has the crappy end of the stick there, I tell you

    This method only works when you get the sun in the morning, see. If you know you've got to get a ride in, but you don't think the weather's going to clear up, you may as well go out in the rain...

    Basically I'd have been happier if it had belted down all day. Maybe not.
