IT WORKED...!!

FIONA BACK OUT ON TODAY'S RIDE
My recent post about the bad weather and then another post about mudguards and mudflaps seems to have had the desired effect. 
Since I made those two posts we have had three days of wonderful dry, warm and sunny weather. 
I have been able to take 'Fiona' the Felt out each day.


My intention on my recent rides has been to have some nice easy riding and enjoy the views and the countryside....easier said than done though. 
The Felt is the kind of bike that just cries out to be  ridden hard, so try as I might to take it easy each day I have found myself pushing it harder and harder throughout the rides. 
These past three days I have ridden out to Lulworth... Wool... Moreton... Dorchester.....Bere Regis to name just a few of the towns and villages I have ridden through. 


One landmark that I reached over the past three days was breaking through the 5,000 mile mark on my years mileage. I will update the mileage counter as normal at the weekend.


When I got back from today's ride I thought that I would checkout the weather forecast for the next few days......
Oh dear! 
It seems that making those posts was only a temporary fix for the weather. 
Apparently today was the last we will see of the good weather for at least the next four days as wind and more rain is predicted..... 


Ah well.. At least that means I will be back out on the Tifosi and will be able to try out the new mudflap fitted just before this three day summer....

I like Limom's comment. If you don't want rain, take your rain jacket with you or carry your umbrella LOL!

Actually there is some truth in that...on only two occasions when I have stuffed my lightweight rain jacket into a rear jersey pocket has it actually rained.....leave it at home and you can virtually guarantee rain..!!
