Don’t make me create a route 😡!

It’s been a fun, but long day. I’ve sat through a long seminar, fought my way through Manchester’s traffic and seen some amazing L S Lowry paintings!

But now I just want to relax and see what the weather will be like for the usual club run tomorrow 🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♂️. I don’t have a preplanned route and I really can’t be bothered making one. Let’s face it plotting routes on route planners is pretty tedious and not a fun Friday night activity.

So fortunately all I have to do is take last Saturday’s ride and change the date. It’s that simple! Watch the video below to see how easy it is for you to view a weather forecast for one of your old Strava Activities.

Now I can wonder all night if -0.2 Celsius is too cold to ride 🤷‍♂️
