    Hooray it's the first day of spring today

    Hooray it's the first day of spring today.

    Yes, it really is.....at least it is down here, and what a beautiful day it's been - 18 degC and a nice 20 kph southwester to make it interesting.

    Sorry to gloat, but it's our turn to have some decent biking weather now.

    Have a nice fall ya'll

    Naaaaa.... Just think of all that hot weather and the dehydration it will cause, all that extra weight on a ride. Then there are the trails that will set like concrete so when you fall off it is going to hurt. No reason to wash the bike down if it doesn't get muddy, so all those cables getting the dust in them and causing shifting problems uphill. Then there is the fact that you may get so enthused with doing a ride- that you won't get the pie stops in.

    Just had our summer- I think it was sometime in july, and we are just getting back to sensible riding weather

    You guys are upside down, there in NZ. Doesn't that make the beer fall out of your mug before you can drink it?

    Plenty room for visitors.

    The best time for cycling is between now and Xmas. After that it gets a little too hot (low 80s F) and too crowded
