    I feel I must apologize for the bad weather as it may be my fault . 2 weeks ago I bought a nice shiny new bike since when the weather has taken a turn for the worst sorry :shy:
    Booked a day off work today to put some miles on it but it's not going out in this :rain:. The old Defy may be let out it the rain later
    Once again please accept my apologies ,I sure this weather will break

    Phew, thank goodness for that, I thought it was caused by me taking my carbon bike out during the dry spell 2 weeks ago.

    Consider yourself thoroughly blamed - your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

    It is also the fault of the weather that this thread was duplicated, I suppose. ^_^

    Not your fault - it's those TV weather girls who decide what we get.

    Then there was me thinking that it was my fault as I bought a nice garden seat two weeks ago. It has been covered up ever since and now doubles as a bird bath.

    You could change it easily, just fit mudguards to the new bike. :angel:

    The weather's pants because I *had* to go out on the bike today. Needs must, and stuff that needs doing waits for no woman.

    I had to pour the water out of my shoes. :cry:

    Oh thank goodness..
    Not just me then.

    I bought a new bike, late on last year.

    From then, until Christmas the daylight started lessening.

    I thought it was my fault.

    Thankfully we've had an upswing since then.

    For a moment there, I was worrying I'd bought on the apocalypse with my spendthriftery :angel:
