The Slow Creep To Winter

16 Sep 2009 at 15:03

It's begun, then beginning of the end, all is lost, only darkness looms, bright is the sun, cold is the air.

My brain doesn't like this time of year, struggling to maintain forward progress but knowing full-well there's an on coming season that'll hit me like a Juggernau(gh)t, just have to keep on pedaling, just a little longer, just another turn.

Definitely getting cooler. Foggy mornings, sun lower in the sky, more Northerly winds. Soon it'll be freezing, wet, properly windy. Bring it on :)

I love riding in the foggy mornings. Plus round here, worse weather = less ignorant "walkers" !!

It's cooling down but the trails are drier/faster than they were in july and august, I'm enjoying it.
Shush simon, nobody likes wind and wet is expensive but I'm with you on freezing. Blisteringly cold days on rock hard trails are great. Looking forward to nightriding too.
