No that was a few days ago, it was damp and grey yesterday and today is wet horrible. Turgid weekend riding for me with storm Alex and it’s aftermath.

Indoors or outdoors today, that's the big question. Too damp for risking trails yet with 1.5 hands... but if i road ride i'll get bloody cold on my hand.

Was out at Epping Forest today. Was so muddy at the end that the only option was to turn the hose on myself after cleaning the bike.

Bloody freezing and didn’t actually clean me but did enough for me to be allowed into the house before undressing. :mrgreen:

Just contemplating going out on the Downs behind me this evening. I suspect that the green chalk will have arrived ...

Only 24-25km today, but all outside and mostly trails. The wrist/hand, it wasn't terrible but wasn't perfect, gentle trails, ridgeway etc i can manage... once it starts getting a bit rooty i can feel it juddering the hand a bit more than i'd like, so stayed away from it mostly.

Epic being out there though

It is indeed -the route into Steyning last night was like trying to steer on a diesel slick
