- First pleasant ride of the year.
Bit soon yet!
I was supposed to ride today but it wanged it down here on Friday and nothing has really tried out and in sick of the cleaning required after a ride. I’ve opted for a lazy day with the little dude today and a turbo session later on.
Can’t wait for it to warm up and dry out a bit. I’m bored of winter now.Posted 4 years agoJAGSubscriber
I did a very pleasant road ride yesterday and a single speed “pop-to-the-shops” ride today.
While I was out yesterday I rode past my local off-road route and it’s all pretty wet and deep mud still. I’m in Warwickshire.
Winter still has time to deliver a sting in the tale but at the moment I’m feeling optimisticPosted 4 years agomdavidsMember
Mtb-ing in hamsterley yesterday and just had no enthusiasm, up to the eye-balls in clarts within the first mile or 2, called it a day after 11 miles and came home early.
50 miler on the road bike this morning with a distinct lack of the bitter westerley that’s been a feature of nearly every ride over the last few months and didn’t get cold, wet or muddy. Fantastic!Posted 4 years agomuddydwarfSubscriber

Miserable road ride yesterday, 61 cold and foggy miles with a near constant headwind with 5400ft of climbing. Bonked & broken with 25 hilly miles left to go, only 2nd ride of the yr due to illness & it showed!
Seriously reconsidering my plan to ride a 200km audax next Saturday now.roverpigSubscriber
Had to push lots of uphill bits as it was too icy to get any traction, pushed all the way over the top as the paths were all full of snow, then carried it down lots of icy descents. Not so much a bike ride as taking my bike for a walk. Not sure winter has quite finished with us yet.

We spent a couple of days hacking back trees and clearing up the garden. Dig down more than a couple of inches and the earth is well frozen still. Expecting rain and possibly snow showers over next day or so, so spring is NOT here yet.
Mind, it was near 10* and sunny, just lovely to be out with bonfire, old pallets to build canoe rack and big saw to chop down trees…Posted 4 years ago
