It’s always a good idea to check the weather before going on a long cycle ride, which is precisely what I did yesterday. Cloudy and 18 degrees Celsius for the next 8 hours seemed like pretty reasonable conditions to get a decent ride in, so I headed off into Kent to find some hills.
I was holidaying in Cairns only a few weeks ago and have been following the news about Cyclone Yasi with some interest. Looks like it’s going to be a devastating storm, only weeks after other parts of Queensland suffered serious floods.
It’s been brass monkeys the last week or two and there’s been some heavy snow falls across the UK as demonstrated by the satellite image above. What an amazing image.
