I'm not a fair-weather cyclist - I rode 300+ miles over Christmas in the wind, rain and sub-zero temperatures - but I do have my limits...
|Cycling in June 2012...|
June 2012 is forecast to be the wettest month on record and I'm afraid to admit that I hate riding in the rain, so cycling is becoming a rare pleasure at the moment.
I've ridden in some pretty awful rain - I remember the end of my first day riding from Birmingham to Edinburgh in 2008 when the heaven's literally opened in Buxton and a biblical downpour near Hamburg in Germany the year before - but it's just not something I could ever enjoy.
It's not so much the soaking - although that's bad enough - it's more the drying out of the clothes, the cleaning off of the bike and the way that rain seems to turn drivers into idiots.
So all I can say is, please let the sun come out in July!
