    LOL! I'm thinking more for the long chilly nights in the tents!

    15 to me is ideal riding temperature. Its actually been fairly cool here this spring but we are going to pay for it on Canada Day with a forecast of 36C with a humidex of 46. The plan is to spend the day doing things in the basement. They're going to be dropping like flies up on Parliament hill during the festivities. So I'll be envying you chaps in the nice cool weather.

    its been two years since we spent a summer at home, I'm wondering what we are in for.

    I’m good down to about 4 or 5 deg C with a mattress and thermal blanket in a tent.

    Hitting the road in an hour, was drizzling but stopped now and Twillingate (tonight's destination) looks good. The "loop" in the morning and then hoping to get to Frenchman's Cove before it starts to rain with chance of thunderstorms later Friday night! Sat. rainy in the morning but then i think we get some sun for the rest of the weekend? See you there.

    Great weekend! Should be dried out and warm by this Friday. 750 km ride home for me, bike unloaded, actual unpacking can wait til tomorrow. Food in the oven, glass of wine poured and a change of dry clothes.
    Had a fine time... hope everyone keeps safe.

    Got home around 1430 after riding hard rain and 8c through the hills. Sweater, rain gear and heated grips on Canada Day while the mainland swelters.
