Where Has The Nice Weather Gone?​

Waking up and discovering there is snow on the ground, 25 mph gusts of wind and temperatures around 1°C is not quite what I expect at the beginning of March. It certainly doesn't help the motivation to try and get out on the bike either. I would like to say that we braved the weather... Continue Reading →

It’s Warming Up

Finally! We are definitely on the edge of winter and nearly into spring. The evenings are getting lighter; I'm now able to go to and from work without turning my car headlights on. Ok, bad analogy, I don't turn them on, my car does it for me. But still. The temperature is increasing too! Over... Continue Reading →

First Few Miles of 2019

Wow! It's really cold! Yes, I was crazy enough last weekend to go for a quick ride. When I say quick, I don't mean fast, I mean we decided that around an hour was long enough to be cycling; and we decided that while we were on the ride. It was the first ride of... Continue Reading →

Am I A Fair Weather Cyclist?

I ask myself this question fairly regularly. In my head, I like to think that I'll go out riding regardless of what the weather is doing. But in reality, I'm checking and double checking the weather before I head out of the door. So, by that definition, I am a fair-weather cyclist. However, just to... Continue Reading →
