    awful day's weather her but it's cleared now, blue skies but what sounds like a hell of a wind

    I do have mudguards and just about adequate brakes

    the new condor fratello is due to be ready today, no call though

    nice evening here with a strong if blustery good wind, loads of primary going really rather fast, spinning in the gears usually saved for big downhills

    nice

    Got a bit damp this morning on the way in, but there were none of the 20+ mph winds forecast on Metcheck. Very light breeze only.

    Managed to leave work just after 4 and get home whilst the sun was still out, though by the state of the roads / paths, I'd just missed a downpour.

    Still, mustn't grumble. I think I've only had one soaking this year so far (touch wood). Long may that continue.

    Well it is hailing here now. Took the car in this morning as I was too lazy to get up early enough and it was blowing a gale and raining. Glad really as by the time I managed to get home it was peeing it down again and I'd have got a good soaking.

    It was interesting riding in this morning. Hardly had to pedal as the wind was so strong. Was sooooo tempted to drive but was glad I didn't as the weather for the ride home was great.
