    As the title suggests, it's Friday night and I'm already feeling a bit frustrated after getting cheated out of one of my weekly commutes.(long story) I'm off for the long weekend, so don't go back to work until Tuesday. Weather forecast is horrendous even though I don't really mind the rain but draw the line in storm conditions. I've never fancied a turbo trainer, so what do you do to burn excess energy when the weather is so bad?

    Just man up and ride. Unless you are in NW Scotland, it won't be rain all weekend. Hopefully for me, it will pass over on Saturday night and be gone by Sunday morning.

    I'd rather eat my own arm than sit on a turbo for hours.

    Unfortunately, I'm just far North and West enough to catch it all weekend according to XC.

    I'm in full agreement about the turbo though.
     
  9. Brutal here. Went out earlier and it was horrendous headwinds.

    Mr weatherman has just said it will be nice here.
    But turbo for me in the winter just to keep my legs moving.

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    What is this excess energy of which you speak?

    It's a new phenomenon for me as well, but a welcome change brought about with positive action.

    Bit windy in our area, just as we are going to attempt our longest ride of the year.
