Looks like I got my wish.
Recently, I wrote about my concerns that my Etape Caledonia training had all been done in relatively fair weather.
Would I cope if we got a stinker of a day?
I have been watching the forecasts all week and, if I perform half as well as the weather gods, I should be fine.
In fact, thoughts have quickly switched from how to handle cold and rain to “What if it’s too hot?”

It seems Sunday will be the warmest day of the year so far. With light winds also being predicted, colleague Graham Huband suggested this may be the “Taps aff Etape”.
I promise I’ll be keep my shirt on but, all in all, I couldn’t ask for any more for my first sportive.
Which means I’ll have to find another excuse if Schiehallion beats me.
