About 5 mins further up the climb visibility was down to less than 50 feet thanks to white out conditions. Fun times :lol:

55 miles round the Peak District today on a local clubs hilly reliability.
Only 2 of us completed it due to the high winds and snow in exposed parts, and no photo's because i wasnt stopping and getting my phone out my pocket!!
Strangely, in the lower areas it was fairly pleasant....

Had to stop my ride yesterday as I was getting sunburnt on my head. My (Italian) wife asked me yesterday what it would take to return to the UK to live. Im thinking "a plane big enough to get me and my telegraph pole in."

@ xrs2: At least your Ergo3's aren't white:


This was a good weekend. Finally been ramping up and made it up to 14 hours on the bike this week, about 350km. Need to keep up the momentum. Been doing most of my rides on the CX bike so it was real nice to bust out the road bike finally!

While you guys are still fighting through the cold, we are enduring a record heat wave and look to easily surpass the number of successive days over 30 degrees celcius!

Still got out this morning for a ride in the Dandenongs - getting in the 1 in 20 and The Wall before arriving home around noon with a temp of 32 degrees already!

On The Wall.

You lucky bastards. Using the road bike is but a dream in my parts of the world. Studded tires is the stark reality, and taking out the phone to shoot something pretty means nail bite.

Saw Jon Tiernan Locke (Team Sky) out on a training ride today round my way - Somerset, UK. Despite being cold, windy and getting dusted with snow this one of my favourite rides of the year thusfar.
