- Forecast is lovely, who’s out this weekend?
Just as I start a renewed training effort, the forecast is for endless rain. I thought I’d head out just before the rain started this morning but it’s now lashing it down before I’ve finished my coffee.Posted 8 months ago
Hoping to be out this evening, even if wet…. Of course, there’s WET and wet…. if it’s WET…. i’ll be on Zwift.
Sunday, hoping to be at Swinley… .with the same caveat of course.Posted 8 months ago

Mate wants to take his new car to Nant y Arian, I’m struggling to think of another TC are badly exposed to wind and rain, so it’s probably going to be character building, but I love the place so hey ho.Posted 8 months ago
It might be lovely where you are but it’s looking ropy here in the midlands.Posted 8 months ago
That means it’s running for me, much more pleasant when the weather is crap.
Yeah looking pretty ropy in the West Midlands for tomorrow which is annoying as I really need to head out both days. Sunday is looking better so it’ll be winter roadie as a minimum. Zwift tonight.Posted 8 months ago
Aboyne was very wet today.
The Forestry Commission Forwarders have made a good job of the climb up to Birsemore 🙁

If its any help moley thats what my mother said to me just a tease not a dig.

We’re in the Peak District with our campervan. I got a yellow warning of misery from the Met Office this morning so the bikes are staying in the dry and we are going hiking.Posted 8 months ago
I’ve packed waterproof jackets, hats, gloves, trousers, boots and gaiters. And the van, we could just stay in the van, with the heating on…
I have a new fat bike that needs to be christened….so I am off out over the Chase irrespective of what the weather is going …if you see a bright pink Ice Cream Truck, give us a wave 😉

Timed almost perfectly this morning, just started raining as I rode home. Actually helped clean the bike. And my jacket. And my face.
Cake. Good suggestion.Posted 8 months ago
Was out yesterday. Not actually raining, but by God, are the trails wet. The end of a set of brake pads that have only been on about 300km …
Went to town for a present for my Mum – inconsiderate woman that she has a birthday so close to Christmas (although to be fair when she was born it wasn’t really close at all) it was rammed obvs, consequently just got back.
May run as the trails will be a mess and the roads were awful. Road ride tomorrow am hopefully.Posted 8 months ago
Filthy 30k up and down the Brown Clee this morning. Everything is completely saturated, glad I made the effort though.Posted 8 months ago
It might not be dry, but it’s the mildest temp I’m aware of in Southampton since I returned from a chilly Prestatyn 11 days ago…
Won’t be going out again though, I’ve had ~4 hours outdoor time today through cycle commuting and delivering, trying to rustle up some energy and enthusiasm to set the turbo up!Posted 8 months ago
FOD for me tomorrow. First time out in a couple of months so I’ll be blowing!
Don’t care about the weather, I can’t wait!Posted 8 months ago
I’ll be out Sunday doing a local urban, country park and cheeky trail ride.Posted 8 months ago
It was mildly moist in QECP today, and many many MTB’ers….Posted 8 months ago
Due to a cock-up in communications with mates, I ended up doing a gentle spin round the Blue and the South Red at Whinlatter on my tod. Didn’t get rained on and had a lovely ride.Posted 8 months ago
FoD then Yat. It’ll be an all-dayer. It’s double mudguard and hardtail weather. Doesn’t look like it’ll be raining tho and it’s warm-ish as well.
