So…Who manned up and rode in this morning?
I’d planned to ride in, then saw the weather forecast last night, and thought ‘**** that!’
Autumn was nice while it lasted though. All 6 days of it. Best baton down the hatches until it stops raining next May
EDIT: if my mind hadn’t already been made up, it would have been at 3.30 this morning, when I was awoken by the sound of wheely bins being blown down the road 😯Posted 5 years agoxherbivorexSubscriber
i wasn’t gonna let a bit of water stop me from making my first commute on my new roadrat i picked up on saturday.Posted 5 years ago
and to be fair, it wasn’t actually that bad, but it’s only 4 miles into the centre of manchester on pretty flat roads.
not fitted mudguards yet either, so i did get a bit wet but we have showers here at my work and plenty of secret spots to dry clothes out (the perks of working in IT support- access to rooms that nobody else can get into)…
Aquaplaned the road bike through a foot of water this morning down the Portway in Bristol, but as much as it was grim, it was fun too.
Was gentle on the cobbles though, for obvious reasons.
Was nice to have an empty changing room and bike locking stand too 🙂
Anyone else battle through the wild stuff this morning?Posted 5 years agoTiRedMember
Not today, day off. A light sprinkle of rain is no excuse. Mudguards and a decent jacket are all that’s needed. Will be riding tomorrow. And the day after… (I don’t have a car)
Forgot spare socks.
Fundamental, schoolboy, etc.
The Schoolboy error, is not keeping a spare set at work all the time, for just such commando emergencies. Although I did once spend a day walking around our open plan office in road cleats and a suit after a shoe/commute mix up after the holidays.Posted 5 years ago
