Keep hearing and reading that summer 2011 was crap, summer has finally arrived in September etc, etc.
It has been the driest summer since (the one all us old gits remember) 1976!
Sure if your idea of a good summer is stripping down to your thong and topping up the skin cancer then it might not have been great but for riding bikes off road in the UK it's been ace. I live in an area where normally the slightest hint of rain makes everything unridable and I've done more local riding than any year I can remember. It's still dry and dusty!
Short memories? Weird concept of a good summer? Pessimistic buggers? What do you reckon?
