Summers back in North Wales

Took advantage of a beautiful day here in North Wales temperature 21 degrees.

Great day for riding, a few damp patches to watch out for but otherwise superb!!!

Yeah we had a great day here in Edmonton Alberta Canada. I started riding at 800am & it was 22F thats -6C, but no wet patches to speak of. We did a 250 mile ride to Brazeau Dam, it got to 45F during the ride but there weren't any bugs & I had good company. Hopefuly I can get a few more weeks before the snow :-(

Fantastic and 77 F here. Tomorrow promises to be even better.

John, why are there no bugs on your shield... you cannot be riding fast enough.

Watched the Glacier video on youtube. Thanks for sharing that one; the Alps are beautiful.
