Sorry to hear it's all wintry there guys - don't miss it atall
I hate to rub it in, but it was much the same today - "Ho Hum; another sunny day - might as well go for a ride" - Hey Geoff, I remember it starting to snow as you, Trev and I wheeled a bike in a van at your place and I got down the M1 in a blizzard about this time of year - also remember riding to and from work in sussex/hampshire in the dark, on the ice (got through a few pairs of undies that year!) ...I'll take me camera with me from now on, and give you all a bit of sunshine riding to help yaz through the grey bit - I'm being facetious (how d'ya spell that?)..... my best biking memories are all U.K. based..... and "No"; I don't ride in a T shirt - full kit; it might be a bit uncomfortable, but not as uncomfortable as a skin graft.
Hunker down for the big freeze guys - Gad it's hot - and have yerselves a great Christmas.
