I'll join in the moaning. :biggrin: Ok it is to be expected this time of year, but I still don't have to like it. What with having had three colds and the flu I've hardly been on a proper ride since November. Even when I haven't been ill it has been too wet/windy. I went on a short ride on the MTB and the mud was so bad that within half an hour my bike had pretty well ceased functioning. The ratio of time spent on bike versus time spent cleaning/washing is very unfavourable at the moment!

Billy Connolly said that there's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes. I think he's talking shoot.

The weather has been consistently poor but we'll appreciate the good times more.

I'm fed up of being wet too... I thought there wasn't much rain coming down today so didn't put on my new waterproof socks... but its amazing how wet you can get in that fine rain. I keep imagining all those people in cars passing me and thinking that person is completely mad!! (and that they are nice and dry).
