Next weekend when I am off, undoubtedly we will be back to wind and rain again!
You could be right Melds; next week is Spitfire/Tempest weekend and that usually means wet and windy
On a brighter note, it's lovely out there today 3hrs pedalled in warm sunshine - though there was a bit of a breeze blowing. Went out with the aim of a relatively steady ride including some hills to see where I'm at. If I'd been on the road bike I think I'd have had to bale on a couple of the hills but as I was on the tricross with its triple, I made it up them all, albeit very slowly.
Conclusion, endurance is ok as long as I get the nutrition right but I'm currently even worse than before at hills. Might have to change my commuting route to include a circuit of Box Hill
