Who was out last night on their bike?
Where & did you come home like a drowned rat?
Despite the rain/hail I had a great ride last night over in Hebden Bridge.
Did get paranoid on my back to the car when the lightning started. Thought someone was taking photos of me with a flash. Took me a few minutes until I put one & one together 😳Posted 3 years agobinnersSubscriber
Are you insane? Had you seen a weather forecast, you maniac? Which part of the forecast appealed specifically? The torrential horizontal hailstones? The high winds? Thunder and lightning? Or the dream combination of all the above?
The forecast is good from now onwards. Why on earth would you go out in that lot last night? You need help…

Ride home (more early hours of this morning though) and yes got soaked going to work and riding home. It was, of course, dry the rest of the day and if I had finished on time it would have been a dry ride home (literally started as I stepped out of the office.
Skins waterproof though.Posted 3 years agopondoMember
Unlucky! I left work at quarter to six and must have had special legs on, did a good average for me 20 miles back to the car (including the fantastic descent of Knowle Hill towards Kineton, on Edgehill). Few bits of drizzle about but nothing much else going on, just a bit of a grey sunset. 🙂Posted 3 years agocraig5Subscriber
Yep out last night, plan was to do a there and back up/down Nan Bield from kentmere. The rain stated just as we set off, by the time we started on the common proper the cloud had come right in and rain was trying to turn into sleet. We decided we were mad, turned tail and decided to have a go down HP plantation. After passing back through kentmere again and the usual Mr Watson mechanical faff. Clouds cleared, and we decided to make another attempt on Nan Bield. Sadly we only got about 3/4 of the way and the weather turned again. So we turned back just as it was getting dark and sessioned the rock drops on the final drop of the common. Wether cleared up agin by the Time we were back in the car.Posted 3 years agohjghg5Member
Yes, or at least I did my commute home rather than going out for “fun”. The rain in itself wasn’t too bad at that stage (and nothing like what I heard coming down later), but what was slightly more concerning was a car that lost control coming towards me round a bend and which was heading towards me sideways in the middle of the road 😯Posted 3 years ago
