It was raining this morning, which isn't really a problem, so I donned all my wet weather gear with the plan for keeping dry. I intentionally wore a lighter pro-layer under my leathers to help keep things comfortable, but by the time I had got the bike out of the garage, I was sweltering. An unseasonable 12 degrees meant that no matter what I did, I had too many layers on. Looking at the forecast the temperature looks like it will be returning to the seasonal average in a few days or so, but in the meantime, if I get a dry day, I may have been able to take the big bike out for a spin.
My name is Matt Brown and I'm a UK journalist formerly based in London, but now calling the South of England home. I've been riding bikes since 2007, but got hooked straight away. Nothing gives me the feeling of freedom, even when stuck in a city. In 2010 I became a RoSPA gold rider, but when it comes down to it, I'm Just a normal man, riding his bikes as often as he can.
