You may remember I mentioned last week that I thought we might have an early spring - well last night was one of the warmest August nights since the mid 1880s. We had a minimum of 16 degrees.
Looks like we can start taking off our thermal training gear and start riding again in bare legs. The skies on recent nights and mornings have had a red tinge to them which looks quite magnificent as we ride in the early morning on Beach Road. We get to see the sun rise, the best part of a new day.
Can't last though - the forcast for the weekend is for a drop in temperature and rain. Oh, Well - it will help the garden grow.
