Looking back over some old posts you could be forgiven for thinking that we should re-title our blog grumpy riders talk guff about the weather. And in our defence it is a subject that is never far from the riders' thoughts since we need to think ahead when getting out on those roads. Today however proved to be one of those perfect sunny days that have you thinking, this is why I ride. Crisp blue skies, bright sunshine and even a hint of heat taking the temperature to a toasty 13 degrees. In the circumstances a long is an obligation and on the route south and towards Stewarton there was the reward of views to the southern uplands before turning for home and the delight of Ben Lomond and Arrochar Alps beyond all with a dusting of snow. Smiles all round. A definite sense that spring is on the way. There have been a couple of hints with the pre spring classics and then Milan - San Remo with the sight of Cancellara out-sprinting Cavendish. The Classics just around the corner might just be time to put the turbo away stop the thinking and the talking and get out there and enjoy.
