This weather is diabolical!! (still a good ride though)
Four of us set off from Carlops last night with a cold east wind in our backs, went along the Roman road to West Linton and turned south into the hills that lie there (don't know their names). The weather alternated between hellish and hellishly hellish with rain that at times threatened to drill holes into our faces and parts of the tracks with nearly a foot of freezing water in places. The Garmin later showed the temperature to be just above freezing point and where this leaves the Global Warming advocates I'm buggered if I know. Anyway quite apart from that it was a bloody good 20 mile ride even if I'd have been warmer sitting at home in the fridge.
