Took afternoon off. Grabbed some ciders, slapped on some factor something and headed into the remanents of my garden for some radio and tanning.
After 20 mins I’m uncomfortably warm and the cider is basically hot.

Off into Leeds for a few beers with my mates tonight. There was some debate about whether it’s appropriate (for a middle aged bloke) to wear shorts on a night out – but it’s so damn hot I might.
I warned them if they kicked off too much I’d be in a slash sided muscle tee and skinny cut-offs – that’ll show ’em.Posted 3 years agosingletrackmindMember
Rode 9am – 2pm 39miles, off road today . Was very hot on the exposed sections, but ok-ish in the woods . Car therm read 33’c on start up , but very quickly dropped to 29’c on the run home along the A27.Posted 3 years ago

On weeks family holiday. Been getting progressively better and warmer last few days, today’s a belter. Barely a cloud in the sky, breakfast outside, lunch outside, family activities in the afternoon, back to a really quite warm holiday house..
Beer in fridge so all is well. Have managed some lovely singletrack spins as well. Must look out some photos to increase the smug factor.Posted 3 years agoRscottMember
Got up slapped some factor 30 on as I’m ginger, proceeded to mow the lawn. Went back on put some more f30 on went for a ride. To hot for a fatty like me so went home put some more f30 on had bbq and now suffering. I reapplied suncream every hour and I still look like lobster. I’m now 100% against the sun and phrases from mates such as sun’s out guns out.Posted 3 years agoalibongo001Subscriber
Just come back from a week in Malcesine @ lake Garda.
I usually go during the May school hols (with the kids) but had to go later this year.
30+ degrees most days, I found myself on a loop going up the last bit to the half way point on the cable car (20% road gradient) thinking is this fun in this heat?
It was much better a couple of days later and actually in the cable car!
