Hose pipe + muc off + rinse but even then I don't point the hose water directly at the hubs / freewheel / BB / headset.

Well all I can say is that the relentless rainy weather here was converted to snow in the Alps and I had a week of snowboarding in fresh powder snow every day with virtually empty slopes - heaven. Came back Christmas Eve and had rides Christmas and Boxing day in reasonable conditions.It's not your destination that counts, it is the glory of the ride. (apologies to Edward Monkton)

Welcome back, CB. Not a bad pre-Christmas break by all accounts! Weather in Blighty has been soaking bordering on deluged.
Everyone still managing to get rides in, or are some stuck in areas officially flooded?

The value of full mudguards really hit home recently. I have them on my fixed gear but not on my CX. Got caught in pouring rain on the CX and a soaking arse, feet and legs wasn't pleasant.
