At this point, I was meant to be midway through a tour to central France.
Unfortunately, over the last few days I've picked up a chest infection, and now I'm stuffed, no riding for a long time.

Since then, all turbo trainer rides :(

Yup.

It's not got above freezing here for about four days.

T'was -5 yesterday until well towards midday. I still went out (muppet! :roll: ) I thought I was going to pass out my fingers hurt so much. It wasn't so bad while I was out, but boy does it sting as bits start to warm up again! :shock:

The only problem I tend to get when riding in the freezing cold is talking; I sound pissed! :lol: My jaw freezes, and I lose the ability to speak!

Oh, and I cant stand cold ears.....they hurt like hell :x

I really must dig out my fleece balaclava :wink:
