Woke up to snow flurries this morning and had snow squalls throughout the afternoon. Then throw in a stinging wind with gusts up to 30mph at times and it was one cold ride. I had to dig out my winter bib tights and wear my fingered gloves, and banda to keep my big ear warm. So I decide to just go play around the campground and lake trails. I figured with this weather the area would be pretty empty and it was.

It's amazing, cracking on towards June and we still get these little reminders about how far North our little island group really is.
Yeah, I often forget I'm less than 200 miles from Scotland :O < shivers with memories of July trips>

To be fair, the coldest I've been in May was in South Wales. Just above zero, hours of heavy rain - not great cycling conditions. I'm now grateful for every hour of shorts weather at this time of year, and we've had a LOT in the past 5 weeks :smile:

Just over a week ago I planted one of my potted palm trees in the ground, along with some bedding plants.
Today it’s snowing with blustery winds. :sad:


About 5 years or so, ago, I was camping at the British National flying championships on an RAF base near Grantham, August bank holiday, it was 2 degrees C, one night, I had a British Army thermal suit which I slept in.
Boy, was I thankful I'd taken it.
The usual weather for this do is incessant gales,and/or monsoon type precipitation, only abating on the last day when it's all over.
