Erm... far be it for me to complain, but how the *heck* is it 15 degrees (possibly even more in the sun) on the 12th of February?

It's half term here, and you'd be forgiven for thinking it was actually Easter with all the people walking around the hill in short sleeves. I had to strip down to just one think long sleeved top, as it was just so warm.

I can only think that these temperatures this early in the year isn't a good thing... but, whilst it's here I'm glad I come back from rides almost as clean and dry as when set off.

I may possibly have sat outside the Black Dog for an hour and had 3 pints and a bacon cheeseburger :)

Oh yeah! Must check the GPS to see how fast I went (didn't seem very fast)...

48.5mph - pathetic.

Is it really that dry up rivi? I'd have thought all the wet we've had the last few months would take more than a couple of days to dry up. I may finally take out the new boingy bike then.

Yup, bone dry, Rivi drains and drys really fast, it's just it gets really wet really quickly too because there's no trees anymore.
