If ever there was an excuse for a cool beer after a morning ride today is definitely it. At 700 am it was already 30 C. Came home after a 3 hour ride through the hills absolutely toasted.
Cheers from downunder.

... currently it's -11 C (11 F) and this is the warmest morning in a few days.

We've had an arctic blast blowin' for nearly two weeks and have not been above freezing since (not much snow, but bitter cold)... indeed, I believe that we hit -6 C two days ago but the wind chill still kicked arse.

Yesterday, in full sunlight, I helped a fellow motorist jump start his truck... 5 minutes was about all the endurance my bare hands could take.

We'll talk again in 3.5 months.

Be the bike.
Oi mate....cold for meafrican

I got in my car yesterday morning and it was -1 C. I am in Florida and having moved here from South Africa this is the coldest I have been in like 10 years. Now there is an excuse for hot choclate. So South African will kick butt in the cricket world cup or what??

Cheers from Florida.

Question for you about AstraliaPODIUMBOUNDdotCA

Since your taunting I figure you'd be a good person to ask. I'm considering moving to Australia for a few months. Do you know what the Melbourne track (indoor wood) winter hours are? If you could give me an email at Nick @ PodiumBound.ca I'd appreciate any and all information you could give me.

Thanks! :)
