    Haha I had my light showerproof jacket although not sure if I would have been dryer without it as it's not very breathable at all.

    Also i did nearly ride into the back of someone. Looking back to see if it's ok to overtake the upcoming traffic queue to which the car infront appeared a bit too quickly. Quick rear wheel skid and steered out of the way. Hybrids with disc brakes do have their plus points. Especially as I went to work on my road bike.

    I left home this morning wearing my winter bib longs at 6 am and it was +7 (on Monday it was -6).

    I forgot to take my bib shorts with me for the home journey at 15.30, and it was +15. I was HOT!

    Only 5.5 miles, so I'm always in my jeans and T-shirt with jacket. Too cold at 7:00 to leave off the jacket at the moment. And it didn't rain on me anyway :evil: I know I'll regret that last comment tomorrow when I walk to work :smile:

    Shorts and Short sleeved top both ways.

    It rained coming home, but at least it was reasonably warm rain, and contrary to what some people believe, we're not made of sugar and don't actually melt in the rain. :evil:
