My garden thermometer’s saying 32 degrees! Anyone else forsaking all else this week to ride every night? My wife is like a stranger to me, but how can I not, it’s bloomin marvellous out. Seems only a few weeks ago I was out riding in wooly hat, scarf and several layers. Cycling jersey & shorts everyday this week and it. is. awesome.Posted 4 years agoseaversMember
Take a jumper…then go back inside for the other jumper. Then go back for a hanky. Then set off and remember you would feel better wearing the other shoes, and while you are at it change your shorts.
Or on the off chance you are not like my 70 year old mum just go out and deal with it.Posted 4 years agoCoyoteSubscriber
Would much rather ride in rain than this sun and heat tbh
I’m sure you can’t be miserable in real life as you come across on here.
Riding most nights and it’s awesome! Light till 10 and peachy warm, what’s not to like? Definitely feel more energised in the sun and warmth. Even enjoyed my run tonight.
Still, this is England. No doubt loddrik will be a happy chappy again soon. 🙂Posted 4 years agoSue_WMember
It’s superb! Best weather we’ve had for ages.
Did my first 100 mile ‘century’ ride yesterday – along the coast and across the mountains in the sun … best ride ever 🙂 Saw the weather forecast, booked 3 days off work, plus the weekend – planning on riding til my legs drop off. Absolutely fantastic!Posted 4 years ago
It’s rather peculiar that one would assume that because I prefer rain to warm sunny weather that it must be a reflection on my personality, rather than my preference for a certain climatic condition over another.
The weather forecast is the same, with the implication that everyone should be miserable because its raining. Anything over 18 degrees and riding becomes uncomfortable. It’s rain that gives us our green and pleasant land.Posted 4 years agoCountZeroMember

Sensitive flower! 😉 Anything over 23° is starting to feel a bit warm, but that’s largely down to the humidity that comes with it in this country. I was in London today, sitting in the shade having my lunch, and it felt rather cool with the wind.
Sitting in Green Park this evening, about 6-ish, it was absolutely perfect, the ideal temperature.
I went out for a ride Tuesday evening, about 7, and again, it was ideal, but started to feel a bit too cool with the wind at around 9.
72°F/22-23°C is the perfect temperature for me, and I reckon most people, but if the humidity here stayed around 30-40%, then it would feel cooler up to the high 70’s, maybe even 80. When I was in Vail, there were locals wearing fleeces when the temp was 78, while I had a tee on, just because of the dry air.
