Its only just 9.00 and already its dark:sad: Does'nt seem like I have had much chance for balmy summer evening rides this year and already the nights are closing in.

I hope we have an Indian summer on its way or I am going to be major t'd off.

Look on the bright side.......................................

Dunno what it is, but you can look on it
 
I went out for a quick 'nosey parker' 20km around the 'Climate Change' corner of Heathrow late this after... - blo*dy persistent drizzle, chilly breeze and am now being kicked metaphorically up the backside watching France whip Englands in Marseille...could be a long cold spell... :biggrin::ohmy: :ohmy:
 
got two hours in in the dry this morning,which was a bit of a suprise.
payback will be in the clubs 150 miles in twelve hour ride tomorrow i expect!:ohmy:

I've really struggled to get a decent amount of riding in on account of the weather. Doubtless if my lifestyle were more flexible then I would be able to take advantage of the slightly less rainy better days, but as it is my free time almost always coincides with rain and wind. My summer bike has seen less than two months use this year. :ohmy:

You should move up here, Bonj, the weather may be rubbish but on midsummer, years ago, I was coming back home at midnight and, although the sun had recently set, it was still pretty light and there was a lovely red glow on the horizon. During midsummer it never gets really dark, it just fades to a dark blue glow for a couple of hours before the sun comes up again.

It's even better (or worse, depending on your preference) in the highlands and shetland.

22.00 in the midlands, 22.30 North east, 23.00 Scotland. Unless of course you walk round with your eyes closed / blinkered.
OH! :ohmy: forgot who I was answering :ohmy:

How about starting a campaign for Britain switch to Central European Time (GMT+2h in summer). It would get my vote but probably would not go down well with the Scots.
