Clock changed this morning and a Frost overnight. Air temp at 10am was only 34F but the sun was out so will warm up
Son- in- law and myself and as he has to get riding again- and I need to start getting fitter- we only planned a 25 miler on a flat route.
Within 3 miles- I realised how cold it still was. Should have put on the long finger gloves as they lost all feeling. Ross was on the FCR and he had to get used to it- so it was going to be a slow ride in any case but did not realise how slow we were going to make it. He had done the same on the gloves and I realised why I had to find the spare gloves this morning. He only has MTB long finger gloves but as he was roading it- He borrowed the gloves from the bike shed. His hands went bluer than mine. Serves him right.
So down to the Seafront with that cold wind and checked the temp. Only 36- but it was brilliant sun and if you stood still- the sun soon warmed you up. Coffee and a bit of healthy eating this morning- No Pie so I had a low cholesterol Meringue with a bit of fruit in it. I know- I should have found another cafe- but I blame it on Ross- I still had to get him home so that he could cut my grass this afternoon.
So only 23 miles in a cold biting wind. Nice to get back onto the TCR again- and Ross did like the FCR. Just a pity about No PIE
