    Hours ride in a blizzard, couple of offs. Cycling faster than cars uphill.

    Brilliant!

    Been skiing again today if that counts.

    Oh, and also building snowmen and pulling a sledge with mini-aracer.

    Took my daughter out on her bike to learn how to steer and stop, was only a tiny bit left by then.

    Trying to work out where that is user-removed but can't place it.

    where you been?

    Me? Went skiing etc. from my front door. XC skis, the same sort of thing as you see the biathletes using. I live just outside Malvern – it was chucking down snow from late this morning through till about 6 (still snowing now, but only gently). Had it started settling a little earlier we'd have got huge amounts (I imagine there is a lot higher up) – as it is, 3-4".

    Drac – it's on the coast a little way past Easington. We did the coastal path from Sunderland to Hartlepool – pretty muddy…

    Yeah whatever. it's a **** forum not an English assignment.

    Ah ok User explains why I couldn't place it.

    Yeah, but his sentence is correct anyway (I'll let you think about it).

    …an evening's ride across Burbage in the dark, in a blizzard, on my newly aquired Jake el Snake-o. Absolutely magical! My first ride in the UK for 15 months… What a homecoming, of sorts. It's really not a bad place this, despite the lack of dusty trails at present… hmmm…

    Just in case anybody is interested, here's a vid of a similar trip to what I did today – though there was a bit more snow a month ago when this was taken.

    Didn't get chance to get out, 3hrs of numpty drivers and posh cars with all the electronic gizmos on them that couldn't negotiate a bit of snow, the 3hrs was from Coventry to Redditch btw 👿

    Yeah it is a bit rubbish what happen to the traffic. Got home in 3 times as long as usual rather than 10 times as long as usual by going all the back roads – main roads were gridlocked, but actually reasonably clear of snow, whilst back roads were snow covered but empty of traffic!

    aracer,

    I was expecting you to say something like scotland not the malverns.

    In the North East it is perfectly grammatically correct to say learn instead of teach. I'll learn you. Same in Swedish. "Jag ska lära dig". Grammar also differs in other ways such as using us instead of me for the singular that really confuses my London wife.

    More snow here today with still some forecast but working all weekend.

    Geda, you may have a point there as we use the phrase "That'll learn you" not teach.

    No snow here any more, just loads of muddy slush.
