    It looks like a nice day out there...I'm undecided as to what to wear...longs or shorts....hmmm....I look goooooood in both so this isn't a fashion dilema....will it rain, will I sweat like a pig....will granny on her basket bike show me up...will the ground open up and swallow me if I am the only one still out there in longs....dam...I wish it was raining!;):

    shorts for commuting for me for 5 degrees celcius or higher. Mind you my commute is quite far and I can get rather warm

    Derbyshire actually. The accent and vocabulary are pretty much the same though.

    Padded undershorts/cycling shorts under knee length baggier ones.

    Been like this for the past week (obviously only when cycling though, and I have taken them off to wash them etc.).

    It's been a bit chilly for a couple of mornings, but after a mile or two it's fine.

    I've been in baggies this week.
    I was wearing longs before that.

    Living in Scotland as I do, I follow a well established routine. Longs for 364 days of the year. Then, usually in July or August, we have 'Summer day'. This is the day of the year that is the closest approximation to what the southerners call Summer. On that day, and that day only, I wear shorts - at least until the wind picks up. When I get back from my ride I take the shorts off, wash them and place them lovingly in the drawer, ready for next year.

    Longs for me - don't shave the legs anymore - hairy logs OK in baggies but not lycra.

    Cracked the road bike out today for the commute - 10 hilly miles in and 20 home I think....really nice out now !!!
