    Blue skies here. Not exactly scorchio but forecast is sunny and warm. Will do for me.

    In the blue skies camp here.
    Roads still look a bit damp but sod it the bike needs a clean anyway.

    Plants watered. A cool 13°C right now with wall to wall blue skies I expect that to rise soon so a good ride may well be on

    Of course, as soon as I went out it clouded over but managed to dodge the showers down the vale by going up.

    Shoes were still soggy from yesterday's zwift ride so it was a bit soggy from the start anyway.

    Blue skies seem to be returning now.

    It was lashing.
    Cross fingers i can get enough of a gap in the bad weather to go up 'em and down 'em without being soaked.

    Now its stopped drizzling well be taking the Muttley and Gnasher out to their usual countryside venue for a leg stretch. Bit of a contrast from yesterday where the hounds were appreciating a paddling pool.

    Afternoon folks,
    Traditional slow start was enjoyed. Just popped out to the shops to grab a couple of things for the holiday. Hopefully it will still happen, looks good with a week to go.
    I tried to stop the rain by putting the cushions for garden furniture under cover last night. Off to a BBQ at an old school mate's later. Bizarrely his daughter is a good friend of female child, this also means female child can drive us 😁

    Rain, wind, some sun (repeat).

    ^ That's some serious gravelling.

    V slow start, must have been something to do with the bottle count from last night, but good afternoon ride done. Only couple of hours, but had to gel up after 40km, Chilterns ridge taking its toll again. I'm not built to be a mountain domestique.
