Brrr, it's chilly...

We've out today putting up course markings ready for the TCR road ride on Sunday and it's been pretty chilly. I think it was about 1 degree when we set out this morning but on the positive side the sun has been out, the roads are pretty much dry and there's no snow (at least not yet anyway).

We will be keeping an eye on the weather over the next few days as the forecast has mentioned the South East maybe in for a bit more snow but at the moment everything is looking good.

If you are coming to ride on Sunday, the route heads out towards Leith Hill and Holmbury St Mary so you can expect a few climbs to help keep you warm.

One word of caution, a few pot holes seemed to have developed over the winter, most of them are pretty obvious but just something to be aware of if you're following in a group and can't see the road ahead. ( Just like to add that there is the odd bit of ice as well, Tends to be in wooded areas, so keep your eyes peeled. Dean)

GPX files are now available to download, you should find the links over on the right hand side of the page.

Chilly Mark? Positively balmy on the Long loop South of the Downs, shorts and fingerless gloves time :-)
