    Warmish to coldish

    Had a great ride this morning. 50 kms, just inside 2 hours, on the 'best bike', Rocky Mountain nivachrom steel and carbon, feeling light and easy. Weight loss, about 2 kilos - was very thirsty on arriving home, and visibly pouring out of my skin - not noticeable whilst moving as riding breeze evaporated the sweat. One of the good ones. 34 C, which feels just great to me.

    Back to UK tomorrow. The newspapers advise frost and snow alerts in the North of England, where I'm headed. I packed my folder --------I think I might just not take it. Beer and pies, then

    Pack your Long Johns and a couple of good warm sweaters. Friday sees a Northerly wind bringing cold air and Friday night will probably see the first Frost for us down here. Saturday will have a wind chill factor so make certain you have a windproof aswell- and gloves and ear warmers.

    Of course- those of us that have to endure the first cold weather of the year will do it in our usual stoic behaviour and just moan about it. And believe me-- we will moan. How you will cope I just do not know but you will have to follow this post up when you return to warmer climes and you have appraised your mates about the "Arctic" weather you have experienced.

    Yep, going to be a change.
    While I'm there (UK) I'll receive a confirmation either of staying in the Middle East or not (about which I've already posted). So, either another few years in the warm for a parcel of money --- or losing a parcel of money drinking beer and buying bicycle components with Mr. Stap. Both awful! (Kidding)
