    Further to my last about temperatures in mid 20s .... Have just completed the first day of passes. Temp down to 3deg high winds and lashing rain. Ten foot snow drifts at side of road..... So pack your heated vest guys, glad I did.

    Considering how shit the weather was today I've seen many hundreds of bikes out today, hardy lot over here!

    On positive note, can't recall the last time I was this frightened yet exhilarated on a bike at the same time!

    drove from Le Havre to Calais on Friday morning... I now understand why they close one lane of the viaducts near Boulogne when it's windy. Could barely keep the bike in a straight line with a 60mph crosswind. Got a stiff neck from fighting the bike for 3 hrs.

    It was windy but about half as dangerous this side.
