Grand soft day!
5 degrees, driving rain, heavy spray and gusts of 70kph!

Not ideal biking weather, I'll admit.

A lot of standing water on roads too, with debris blocking drains and stuff.

Be careful out there today, lads and lasses.

It is to get warm and dry by the weekend. :bikerie:

Miserable alright... a real shame that they had to cancel the drag race here in Cork yesterday due to the shitty weather.

Bent over backwards to get a new tyre for the bike on Saturday, so I could ride to work this week. Not a chance this morning!
