Blowing hot and cold
Went out for a ride on saturday, I was supposed to be trying most of the route of next weeks STW ride but that didn't work out. Tho nice weather was promised it was really overcast and chilly so I went out dressed accordingly, shorts with knee warmers and softshell. Up the road drag out of town the sun came out and before I got to barrow bridge I was sweltering so had to stop. Lesson learned these lusso knee warmers a *really* hard to take off without taking your keks off first. More suitably dressed I carried on, up the climb to winterhill, once at the top a thick mist came over the wind started up and I froze, back on with the softshell no chance of getting the knee warmers on. I was suffering up the first climb, still not recovered from infection so decided to cut down the ride. Off the back off winterhill (front for you chorley-ites) steep downhill to belmont road and over to great hill, still boggy and I pushing at times. The downhill was great (haha) tho. Round the resers up rivi and home. Legs were sore sunday.
