Can't get out on my bloody bike 'cos it's lashing down (again) here!

Only got one day off after a weekend at work as I'm losing Tuesday off to go on a course :evil: . Tuesday is supposed to be a little better weatherwise as well. :(

Back at work Wed/Thu so Friday's a possible I suppose.

Can feel fitness ebbing away....... :(

I'm in South wales (kenfig Hill)...didn't stop me yesterday morning(sunday) when it thrashed it down all the way to Margam, and all the way back :(
Worst part was coming back on the road to the house, the spray just soaked through to the core. Bloody weather!!! :lol:

As if the rain's not bad enough, we've got the wind gusting too! :evil:

If I'm going out on my own the rain does put me off. If I'm meeting someone then I'll still go if it's raining. If I'm out and it starts raining then that's life...

Went out recently and just put my shower-proof jacket on... big mistake! It pi$$ed it down 5 miles into the ride, 30 miles after that one soggy and very cold dude got back, even my shoes were full of water! :(
