Being a cyclist means we know weather, seasons become an existential reality

The true joy of cycling is remembered come Autumn. The mornings are fresh, the clouds constant, midday heat isn’t an enemy and the rain makes a joyful return.

Fresh Mornings

I often say May and September are the best months to be riding in Girona, they feel like Summer without the risk of having your skin burnt off and your body evaporating.

Early mornings are still the best time to ride. Rolling out through the old town, before the shops have opened and the people have arrived, into the surrounding hills.

Crisp mornings and the looming threat of rain at all times mean that Autumn in the UK is also a time to change what you wear out on the bike, looking to replace your lighter layers with a more substantial wardrobe to match the unpredictable forecasts.
