    Well: that's it really.
    I'm about to venture out to feel the cool autumn mists breeze through the hairs on my naked kneecaps.
    See you later.

    Last couple of weeks (I'm in Northumberland) I've been in 3/4 length bibs, but short sleeves.... (apart form work, when I tend to wear work clothes, and night time, when the jimjams come out....:blush:

    Yup, shorts at the moment, well, not right now, I'm in my office, so wearing Jeans.

    But yes, shorts for cycling, probably wont wear anything longer than 3/4's through the winter anyway.

    Yes, still in shorts. I wear my normal shorts for aslong as i can, and i'm doing well in my cycle shorts at the moment. Depends if it turns really cold quick though.

    No, shorts went out the window last week; this morning it was -4 at 06:00. :angry: No shorts here until mid April, if I'm lucky.
