    I am braving it all the way to spoons for brekkie, in the car of course. I may venture out later on the bike if I can find the stabilisers.

    Don't want to make you jealous but I'm typing this from my hotel in Khartoum where it's expected to hit 38c today. I won't be cycling though, might go to the pool later.

    No I went yesterday, 15 miles felt like 30. The freezing hadwind was very unpleasant. Although out of the wind it actually didn't feel too cold, although today is forecast to be colder. I'll go to the gym instead :smile:

    I didn't get chance to ride yesterday, so I'll make the effort to go for a ride today. With snow forecast here, most days this week & back at work from Tuesday It'll probably be just turbo spins rest of the week :sad:

    I’m hoping to get out later. Let it warm up a degree or two! I’ve got a silly tickle cough at the minute so don’t want to make it worse - will end up like a bank robber with a snood over my face!

    Forecast has some sun for this PM so might make it more bearable.

    The skies are beautiful blue here but the wind is brutal and not to be braved again

    Yep it's just a shame as without the wind, it looks lovely for cycling and the forecast for the week means no cycling!
