    I am togged up thus and ready for the off.
    This is not a proclamation of machismo: just an observation and polite question.
    Never been able to last this long before. Not had cold tootsies yet either.
    It's great!

    No one can deny it has been bitterly cold for the past month or so (car thermometer showed 2 degrees Celsius on Sunday morning), so you've done pretty well I'd say. This morning I was wishing I had not put my longs on though, I'll be back in shorts tomorrow.

    Well it's going to be a lot warmer but a lot more wet and windy over the next week according to MetCheck so I imagine I will be in shorts or 3/4s.

    I have to use a mix of shorts, 3/4s and longs as I don't have enough pairs of any of them to last me the week.

    Don't really notice any difference once I'm a mile into my ride, just the first bit's a bit cold at times.

    The big boys would laugh at me if I was still wearing shorts at my age.

    I was wearing knee-warmers on the turbo-trainer last night, and that is in the garage! But I do have a dodgy knee to look after, so that's my excuse.

    Keep your knees warm. Or you'll regret it.
