I was able to ride to work 4 out of 5 days this week. The mornings can be chilly (in the teens), but by afternoon it has warmed to the 60's. Yesterday hit a high of 70.

This week the temperatures have been fine for riding here in the UK.

The 70 to 90 mph winds have been off putting though. I think it was the small boat sitting embedded in a bus stop that put me off riding for a few days.

Tis only the 7th day of the year so I assume there will be loads more opportunity to ride this coming year.

Yeah, I saw a little news story about some of your winds recently.

Link to the website that I saw the story (winds up to 130mph apparently)... http://jalopnik.com/5872111/thats-not-snow

Fun website to check into periodically if you're interested in cars, by the way.


Direct link to the video on YouTube. Can also be seen on the previous link.

The wind was blowing so hard it made the ocean frothy with spume.

Not too bad in the North West of England, for getting out. Went to Southport, on the coast on New years day,40mph winds and plenty of rain, but a nice 80ml run for me. On Saturday had a 50ml run, again in the rain.If you live in England you ride in the rain, or you don't ride. Neutral
