Last week I was on holiday. Just a week off to get some jobs done around the house and garden. It was leading up to a Firework party for the neighbours and is an annual event that we have. Well the garden got tidied- Found the Sealskinz gloves in a Garage Cupboard that I had lost. Tidied the bike shed and found lots of spares that I never knew I had and even went to the LBS to get a new crankset for one one of the bikes. Just did not get a ride in- I was so busy or if not busy- then it rained and I could go tomorrow. Saturday came the Fireworks and a B-B-Q in the garden to go with it. Snow was threatened for Saturday night but it never came. Think it was too cold but had plenty of Braziers- open Fires and Chemineas to keep every one warm. Sunday and up with the sun to tidy the garden in 24 deg F temps but no cloud and the Sun would warm everything up. IT DID. Up to 30 deg F and rain. Roads were Icy and it was cold. 2" of rain fell and it was horrible.
So for the first week in a long time- I did not ride.
That has not happened for a long time. Problem is that The weather does not look like breaking till next Friday and the temp may get up to 40F but there will be a breeze- of around 30mph.
Think I'll have to go to the gym this week.
