    I remember last year winter. I had the flu December / January then just when I thought things would look up we had two weeks beast from the east in March. Then all of a sudden a warm spell in April. I got home from work on an April evening and went out in the lovely warm weather with a short sleeved jersey and the relief was almost indescribable.

    I know a local who does this ride. I'd say he is one of the more rugged riders I know! :training:

    I did it in 2015 and doing it again this year. It is like a street party with 1200km of riding. Fantastic atmosphere.

  7. It was roasting out at Oundle :okay: I'm given today a miss though the 1.5h at threshold yesterday have made me pretty tired and I can't be bothered cleaning the bike.
     
  8. Alot of us mix up the scales probably for dramatic effect. When the temperatures hit 32 celsius (rarely) it just seems more dramatic to say the country has temps in the 90's ..Farenheit

    You may be right, but I reckon my reasons go a bit deeper than that. When I was estimating jobs, I would price them using meters square or if it was a larger job it would be the old London square, but if we won the work I would quite often have to return and re-measure in feet and inches to match it to the material we were using. At the time, I didn't think anything about it, like it was just normal. :blush:

    I used to work with a guy who regularly mixed his measurement by eg 2 metres x 10 inches. Not as a joke, he just never got into metric.
