    ojom and I rode round Rothiemurchus & Nethy Bridge, had cake and a cold drink sitting outside the Glen More cafe and then rode into Loch Einich.

    Tonight, it’s snowing in Edinburgh

    I was north of Manchester heading for Penrith and them JoG.

    Weather was perfect.

    A few days later however we rode through horizontal sleet and then after we finished there was snow in Wick and the hills were all snowy on the train home.

    They’ve made me angrier than I already am! Between the weather and this government’s nastiness I couldn’t be more pissed off.

    But look how the summer turned out! Maybe this weathers a sign of better things to come.

    Great pics, but we tend to forget that, while last March was great, last April it was cold wet and (at least up here in Aberdeenshire) it snowed.

    OP; your friend just couldn’t find a loo in time, huh?

    I worked pretty much for 3 months solid and missed the best of the weather for the year. Still had a cracking holiday from the proceeds with the wife and kids.

    This time last year we rode the Glen Tilt – Beinn a Ghlo loop. The trails, even the spongy peaty stuff was powder dry. We wore short sleeved jerseys.

    1 year ago it was ace weather but 2, 3, 4, 5? bet most of them it was showery windy and not great riding. Might be cold but where it’s snow free the trails are almost summer speed and grip. Wrap up and get out riding!

    If you’re currently stuck inside your house beneath a 15′ snow drift I apologise for my glib comments.

    A day out over Glen Buckie, and the Finglas loop. Shorts, sunburn, not another person all day. Ace day out.

    Unfortunately, gusting winds of up to 49mph and rains saw the team halt at Broxburn. At one point, Julie was forced to dismount and carry her bike due to the high winds.the defence rests m’lud

    Captain Mainwaring, Donald and I rode the seven munros of Ben Lawers almost to the day. The next day was spend riding Glen Ample on my Fargo with Pistola and the next day was a lovely ride out to Kippen and back with Ginger and my wee one for a cracking al fresco pub lunch at the Cross Keys.

    This

    Had an ace ride last night. Some of the back lanes near me have still got 8ft drifts at the side of the road, but up on the hills the wind had blown most of the snow away, leaving icy hard and fast trails. I’d rather have that than the more common boggy mess we’ve had.

    I’d been doing the long off-road route home over the turbines because the weather had been so damn good, it would have been bad form not too. As it turned out, it was the best spell of riding all year πŸ™

    Love that photo Bedmaker.

    Lasr good friday we cut the first turf at Southampton Bike Park. I was in t shirt all weekend and got sun burnt. On the monday it started to rain and only stopped briefly to snow for the entire time between then and now.

    Wow, this really is depressing. Who can we blame for this weather? It just seems so futile without being able to direct anger towards someone.

    My father-in-law is getting the brunt of my anger as he once said he didn’t really like the hot weather and was more of a winter fan.

    SATISFIED ROBERT?! SATISFIED?!

    Ying and Yang. At least it’s not raining. I’ve just come back from the south of France which had proper sun and dry trails but I’ll still be out this weekend. Option is not riding and where’s the fun in that?

    Not bikey, but on the 24th March last year (four days out, I know) I was practicing my panning technique at 1/40th of a second with the massive 70-200mm lens. Had to kiss a few frogs to get this one πŸ˜€

    Was a couple of days ago a year ago but I was laid up with a ruptured patellar tendon after a stupid slip on ice 8 weeks earlier. This was an excursion to Aberdour.

    This year is, despite the weather, far better. Leg still isn’t 100% though.
