I'll be in shorts. It is spring/summer time :D


Yeah but your legs move faster than the speed of sound, and just the air causes enough friction to keep your legs toasty...Me on the other hand.... :wink:

And thats just the 'chat' between bikers :lol:

chris I wouldn't bother with a 'mud guard' In these conditions it wont work. I went with 'Lid' a couple of Sundays back round Richmond park. His back was just as bad a mine. :lol:

Can any of the more 'local' riders give advise as to kit choice.

Tights or 3/4 shorts?
Jacket or waterproof?
Long top or shortsleeve under?
And how long are we actually riding for?

And finally :wink: .......rough time for departing after the ride, just so I can plan my evening arrive home time (if I'll be getting dinner, if I'll see the kids before bed etc)

Cheers all
