I went riding in Marsden and I got onto the moor; now I could see where the trail was, everything was covered in snow mind and the only tracks on the trail where of a fox. I managed to start riding but I would quickly lose momentum and grind to a halt. I found that if the snow wasn't compacted down in some way then my riding involved a lot of stop/starting and hike a bike, especially uphill or on the flat.
My bike is a 26" Single Speed @ 36:19 and has 2.35" kenda nevegals on it.
I am wrong to expect to be able to ride my bike in such thick snow?
I remember riding in Esholt last year when it snowed and I had loads of fun. This time I struggled to get enough momentum and keep it..
