    Winter? Snow? Pah!

    With you lot complaining about winter, I thought I'd share our forecast for today - 41C ... that's 106 F.

    Yes, I do have to ride the bike to work (that Jamis from another thread).
    No, I'm not riding back up Flagstaff Hill in the heat of the day, I'm parking on the flats and riding in.

    I think I'll take it quietly today, the land speed record can rest easy for a bit.

    By Thursday our high will be about -19C (-2F). I can put on enough clothes to ride in that. I am not sure I can take off enough clothes to ride in 106F!

    Our short cold spell is over for the time being. Actually got to mid 40's today but still enough thick ice at the edges of the road to say it is not riding weather. Couple that with the 30mph winds and It was definitely a day to be at work.

    Don't envy your ride though. I'm still in Long John mode and it may be just a bit too warm--Still- think of the weight loss of 20 miles up that hill
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and 2011 Felt Z4. :-)

    Never ridden in temps over 100F but I'm willing to give it a try.
    Hot temps =
    Cold temps = Too cold to even go outside!

    For some reason I've been having trouble handling hot temperatures these past few years. 106F is way, way out of my range.

    Is it Magpie season in Oz now?

    It's been over for a month or so. The stroppy buggers scored five hits on me this year, with multiple near misses.
