    good Ashleworth and Woolridge 44 mi 03:17 13.4mph pace

    The weather has relented a bit. 8" of snow and then -9C (16F) made the roads impossible. But a thaw has set in and we now have balmy 2C (35F). The roads are clearing so out I went. I knew ... read more

      Marvellous outing, 26 - keep safe on those two wheels! Although our urban temps have been higher than yours, we still have some slippy stuff here.

    Another bright but chilly day. I decided some miles would be a good idea so off I went around the old Strensham loop. The wind was a tad tricky at times but not too bad. Lots of squirrels out ( ... read more

      Drat those forecasters! A bit of an inconvenience with the rain but it did not totally spoil your day it seems. Well done for braving it anyway.

      That was most unfortunate, 26! As ever it surprises me (and I'm sure our US cousins) the differences we experience in weather in - what - 40 miles? We had the merest hint of drizzle on our run first thing this morning, but it's generally been a fine Autumn day.

      Not like Pete to be flaky, from what I see from your ride outs - I'm sure there was a good reason. You certainly made the best of it tho'. Love the idea of the Origami group! I knew that Bromptons are a big deal in London, but had no idea that they rode out other than the commute (and wonder why, when a road bike in these circs would be far more agreeable?).

      Get that winter kit out, 26! The frost has hit a couple of times this week even in our more urban situation. Glad you are making the best of this delightful Autumn - us desk jockeys have only been able to pine out the window at the days, and run with the chilly evenings.

      Thanks for the waves from the gantry - careful when the traffic starts to use that section again.
