It's pretty logical when you see it.

Have a look at the latest Google Earth shot anyway and see the car across the southbound exit of the roundabout - what is he doing???

See you Wednesday.

That's the one.

I've just replied to your PM as well.

I don't come Polegate way as I cut across from Berwick.

Cold??!! Positively tropical in Seaford!

Havent even had icing on the visor this week.

Studded tyres coming off today. Got a set of Dunlop D908's to put on. Hope to get some more mileage out of them!

I'm looking out extra clothing for tomorrow as it looks like it's just -2ºC at 9.00am then rising to a massive 1ºC.

I would never dream of going out on my road bike in this weather so why am I doing this????- I like my comforts now!!!

I hope there's coffee at the garage tomorrow morning as we're going to be frozen by the time we get there.

Boring story...
I had what I took to be hypoethermia once when riding back from London (about 1977) on a deceptive sunny day in March.
We had stopped about 4 times on the way back and I got to my GF's (now my wife) house to drop her off and had been shaking and shivering for about 10 miles - luckily there was lamp post outside that I could lean on as I couldn't get my feet off the footrests. :oops: and after a bit of massaging (no comments please) I managed to get the extra mile home and found that my legs were blue for about 6" above and below the knees. My god the agony as they slowly warmed up and I was shivering for ages!!!
