Put your hand up if you have booked a beachfront apartment at Westward Ho tomorrow for 4 days. Rolling Eyes

On the plus, the glass off on Wed arvo should be sweet Cool

it would act like a real life turbo session....just ride into the wind and you will get a great session but not go anywhere...

stay safe...

Or the opposite 30+mph with a light cadence, great for some Strava bashing!


Or get a bit of side wind on a TT and you will suddenly be going REALLY fast for very little effort....

Not too much wind here in London, but someone was messing around with the dimmer switch on the sun earlier this afternoon and everything went very dark for an hour or so Wink

We are in Somerset now. The drive from Winchester was eerily ''orange'!

The Smell really got me, exactly the same smell when you step off a plane in Lanza! Laughing


Not surprising really as the air mass is pretty much directly from that region, It was just a bit unnerving knowing I was in Stockport.

Winds got up a bit but it's hardly terrifying, It was worse in Tenby a few weeks ago Laughing

Meh, I went out on my bike yesterday lunchtime, it was fine if you picked the right back roads. Today it's pretty still here tbh.

Tenby was worse than any wind I saw yesterday. We are in Devon now, surf is about 4ft (Aussie measure, non of this inflated wave face poo-poops). It's mushy though, hopefully will glass off.

Really the wind was fine BEFORE the storm arrived! That's a shocker.

It ended up pretty breezy through the night here, but nothing to really get excited about. Looks to have been good stiff breeze out in Ireland though.

It was off the SW coast 6am yesterday, and obviously no-one is actually going to cycle in a proper storm. Lighten up Ian MacCaskill.

or I am just busy.

It was a lovely sun, and warm.

Never seen an alien btw Wink would love to though.

Jorgan, moan at Ejc not me, he baited I replied.

It got so dark at one point I couldn’t read at my desk with natural light.


I did once crawl over the forth road bridge in a storm. That was real difficult.
