How cold does it get in a Perth winter? I would imagine its more comfortable for cycling than an Aussie summer.

A really cold minimum temperature is zero degrees celcius (32 fahrenheit). It usually dips that low once or twice a winter. We quite a few minimums around 5 or 6 degrees (42 fahrenheit).

The days in winter would normally be around 18 degrees maximum (64 fahrenheit).

We get no snow in Perth.

As you can see, it's pretty mild compared to winters elsewhere.

I still prefer sumer riding. There are a few hot days that make cycling difficult in the middle of the day, but it's not too bad. (I suppose it's all a matter of what you get used to.)

18 degrees. That sounds like a cool sumer day here, perfect conditions for no-sweat riding.

We've got it pretty good here.

A lot of people are amazed that I keep riding throughout winter. I'm amazed that a lot more people don't.

It's a little chilly in the mornings and you might get wet, but where's the problem.

The only time I won't ride is if it's a very stormy winter's day. I can't trust motorists in those conditions.
