Well the forecast I'm seeing (Which I tend to rely on for organising my work - yachting photography) is SW winds 20-25 MPH. Rain, but not a great deal 3mm/hour (I prolly sweat more than that!! :? ) Overcast, High temp of 11ºc but prolly around 9ºc without wind chill So with the wind it will feel pretty cold

One reason I went out and bought some full length tights today...I can commute in shorts and ride round for a couple of hours and get red knees...but if TinTin suffers the same amount on punctures he did last time I saw him, I'm not going to be hanging round in the rain wearing shorts...That's just silly :roll:

Why can it be like the bank holiday meet last year...that was lovely and warm....Ahhhh happy days....

Yea, remember bank holiday last year, was up in Durham visiting family. Spent most of the weekend sat in the garden drinking beer and sunbathing, ahh it was bliss.

Bank holiday this year.....cold, snow, wet! :shock: What the hell is going on!!!

It can be cold for the ride. It can be windy(ish) for the ride. It can be frosty for the ride.

But please.......dont rain.


Go on, supprise us, dont rain tomorrow, let the trails have a day off to dry a little.....and please, dont rain on Sunday either! :wink:
