    Being a fine weather cyclist, just wondering when we can expect some nice sunny weather to go cycling in.

    It seems to have rained every day for the last month here :rain:

    Apart from the odd day most days are just showers and dry spells. Always a chance to go for a ride and dry off between the showers.

    It's character building......or so my father told me when he bought me my first road bike and told me I had to make good use out of it as it had cost him a week's wages.

    Had to travel 70 mins out of town in my car last Sunday for a ride, just to hit decent weather.

    Did 100 km around the Surrey Hills yesterday, the rain certainly added to the challenge and the bike looked like it had been around a CX course by the end ! Sometimes you just have to accept that you are going to get wet ... Looking forward to a dry ride on Sunday though.

    I had to fashion a little rain cover out of a plastic apron to get daughter home from nursery on Monday, but she stayed reasonably dry and seemed to enjoy it.

    Rainlegs Ltd are aware and on to you. Patent lawyers are evil. Run while you can.

    Tomorrow looks dry until about 5pm but it's not going to be warm - same story Sunday morning, up here in God's own county.

    Remember that lovely weather we had at Easter?

    That's almost a price worth paying.
