I`ve been on here moaning about the relentless rain back in December. Now 2 months on it`s still f*cking raining, that`s pretty much non stop since September last year. As of 1 Jan, I tried to take on the "I`m not giving into it" attitude, but after nearly 7 weeks of get up - get soaked - do day at work - get soaked - wash and dry kit - go to bed - get soaked - do day at work yada yada yada. I`m burnt out with it, my bike is a mess, I`ve wasted about half a ton of washing powder, and my morale is in the sewer.

Well today I gave in, I`m done, totally pissed off with it all. After 20 years of it I`ve had enough, I`m hanging up my cycling shoes and giving up. Please don`t give me the cobblers about there being no such thing as bad weather, only bad kit, rule no 5 etc. I`ve been through thick and thin with it, but yet the weather over the last 6 months has finished me. I`m out of here:sad::sad:

Rather than being so rash, wait it out for better weather, I must admit this year it seems that I have got soaked more than previous years on my commute.

Have a break from the cycle commute. Take the bus, take the train, sit in your car in a traffic jam - whatever it takes to make you appreciate the ease of bike travel.

Totally get where you're coming from. But as said upthread, better weather is on the way. Don't flog all your kit in a knee-jerk reaction. Sit on it for a couple of months, take a few deep breaths, then see where your head is at. If you still feel the same, then fair enough.

Just out of interest, what sort of kit have you got that you may be flogging cheap? Just asking for a friend like. :smile:
