anto,
I am looking forward to summer next year now.
I seemed to have missed it this year.
We have a bird bath in the back garden and I have only had to fill it a couple of times this year, it has been overflowing for a while now
Julian.

ps I was lucky and cycle camped to the KM rally at the end of May - 6 sunny days out of 7.

Just had four days in Skegness visiting my mum.
Shorts T shirt and 21+.
Quite a shock from 14 and Scottish cloud.
Never drink and drive. You may hit a bump  and spill your drink

Instead of Brompton plus train, took my Raven Sport Tour for the 60 km round trip to the office and back today.

Not too hot, cloudy, dry, not too much wind, so good cycling weather. But rain forecast for tomorrow and part of Friday here in South Brittany.

In June and early July it was often a bit too hot and sunny for comfort - if I ride for more than a few kms in temperatures of 30 C or so I end up as wet as if I had ridden in a rainstorm.

Despite being 32.7C/91F today, the nights here (Eugene, Oregon) have gotten cold. When I awakened at 04:15 yesterday, it was only 5C/41F with a soaking dewfall and when I rode through the city park yesterday, brown leaves were beginning to drop.

Although we still have some hot days ahead, I get the feeling we've turned the corner toward Fall.

Still, running around in shorts and a t-shirt so can't complain. Good riding weather. If you send me your coordinates, I'll put the big exhaust fan in the driveway, aimed your way to bring better weather. Can't hurt...  :D

Best,

Dan.

Next ride, planned with open phones linked to the weather forecast each of us trusts most (that's not a lot!) at the end of our Tuesday ride, is for Saturday because everything in between is messed up with rain and/or high winds.

The problem with riding in foul weather in summer wearing wet weather gear is that the expression "Boil in the bag" becomes apparent.
Don't try and convince me that Gore-Tex works.

In those conditions, in my experience, +1 on that, e-man!

If it is warm and raining, I usually prefer to ride in jersey and shorts, using a wind shell to prevent chilling. I end up soaked, but not cold unless I fail to change to dry clothes promptly afterward.

Best,

Dan.

there's some rain after falling here tonight serious stuff.
i just ware a light shower proof jacket  if i get caught out most of my routes are only 12 to 15 miles from home so no big deal getting wet.
but on tour is another matter seek shelter is my way of thinking. ;)
