Don't see how you guys ride in that weather, cold and rain.

Hate to rub it in, but but 72 and sunny here. As soon as I put the turkey in the smoker it's off for a ride.

It's been a right mix of weather over in east anglia.
Sunny on Sunday morn, then rain on and off all week.
Right now bright sun.
Might have a ride over the week end?

Cool The West Canadian Monsoon

Just in case any of you are interested in other parts of the civilized world, the west coast of Canada has been getting battered by heavy rainfall and gale/storm force wind ever since our (extended) summer ended in early October. October and November all-time records have been exceeded.
The superstitious are wringing their hands and crying out about the wrath of the weather gods' retribution for our smugness during the final glorious days when those of us engaging in out of doors pursuits were merrily maintaining that summer would never end this year due to the vagaries of 'climate change'. Many rivers are over their banks and a few towns are under water. Our provincial government was discussing the construction of an Ark, but the idea was scrapped when it was revealed today that the Ark budget was given to developers busily building facilities for the ill-fated 2010 Winter Olympics.
Now every British Columbian is wringing not only hands, but jumpers, socks, knickers and everything else that is soaked through, including the family dog....
But it's still better than snow!
Slainte!

Got up to 60 degress Fahreinheit here in Colorado today, declined a ride in the twisties as the mountains still have frozen roads in deep canyons that stay a bit slippery! Some snow expected next week but it will be gone the following week, so far I've been kept from riding no more that a week at a time in the recent winters.
