Cambridge Freeze

Weekend of April 2nd took a trip to Kitchener/Waterloo for a weekend away. While I wasn't expecting to ride singletrack as the weather has dragged out this year. but it turned out to be the worst weather in 9 years. Compounded by the fact one doesn't exactly plan to need pack 20 pounds of extra winter kit in April.

By early Saturday Afternoon it began to do this...

And began to see a slow drop in temperatures.  but the ground wasn't frozen so it turned to muck as it was wet snow.

And by Sunday morning it was minus 16 and a skating rink outside. So no riding till later when back in Scarborough.

By evening temps had warmed up slightly and was able to get a bit of a ride in on the Sunday.

The nasty turn of the weather has led to a small pre-positioning cold weather kit at my in laws with all the other kit. Just in case.
