Spring? It’s minus 4C here at the moment!
On the upside, I’ve already seen a meteor, the stars look amazing and Sirius is flashing a bright emerald green (for a while I was convinced it was a helicopter).
10 degrees here in Kent at the moment.
Other than that, you have me totally beat.
Enjoy the solace and the Solstice my friend.Posted 2 months agoblackmountainsriderMember
Nothing really fancy tonight. My GF finishes work late so we’re just walking up a local hill with views over the brecon beacons to watch the sunset and have a hot chocolate. I allways feel like this is a turning point, and soon the snowdrops will be out and leaves forming on the trees. bring on the spring!Posted 2 months ago

Excellent. Live is for living, not wishing away.
My choice of pitch was wise. It was at least 2C colder down in the Strath on my way home.Posted 2 months ago
A couple of shots from this morning.

I normally celebrate the 21st with getting my closest mates together for some drunken fun times, which we did last night and it was great. Your bivvi looks amazing though! We’re heading out for a hike and camp on the first weekend in Jan, so have that to look forward to 🙂Posted 2 months agofatmaxSubscriber
Not me, but two pals did the http://www.ridetothesun.co.uk route (100 mile, overnight, Carlisle to Edinburgh) on the Edinburgh Just Eat town bikes, to raise money for FreshStart. Did it no problem too 👍💪Posted 2 months ago
I was excited about having a bit of extra light in the evening, so I looked up the sunset times and I discovered that the earliest sunset time was actually between the 8th and the 18th. So the evenings have actually been getting lighter since the 18th despite the shortest day being today. Mind boggling I know…Posted 2 months agoCountZeroMember
But it’s the rainy season… again.
It’s Ireland, it’s always the rainy season!
Well, except for around 35 minutes in June or July.
and soon the snowdrops will be out
I was wandering around Biddestone this afternoon, just before popping into the pub for a quick pint, and had a look around the churchyard, there were already some Primroses out!

Top of pen-y-fan at 06.50. For the past decade a group of us have walked up to see the sunrise. This year however there was no sunrise or visibility and it was bloody freezing up there. We’re usually down for 8.30, spot of breakfast and home by 10.30 feeling smug having done that before most people even get out the house.Posted 1 month agohighlandmanMember
We have a Solstice tradition of hosting a few short hours of a local ride around the woods near Glamis in Angus. This is then followed by soup, wine and cake by the fireside. 23 folk showed up this year to have a slide around and while it was a bit muddy in places, no one actually needed hosing down before being let in the house, so that’s a result. Every kind of off-road bike was there, even a few with batteries but the less said about them the better. Especially on the way up Hunter Hill, where the fierce climb seems to have been designed to suit battery power over leg power alone..Posted 1 month ago
