Gisburn forest sheet ice
Chris, it might be best to wait until May or June, just in case. There may still be some risk of rain which you should be warned might make your experience marginally less enjoyable.
Thinking about it, best to stay in or stick to the skate park. 😉

Oh may god, you guy’s don’t half spend alot of time talking about something being rideable or not. If you’ve got a plan to go out riding then do it. If the conditions are bad prepare well and take your time. You’re not going to ride ‘rad’ on a winters day but you’ll sure feel like you’ve achieved something once you get round nice and steady.
Notes for riding in winter conditions:
If it’s crunchy, it’s grippy
If it’s silent, it’s slippy so gently pedal (ie choose a really high gear so if the wheel does slip your feet don’t do a full rotation on the pedals). This will allow you to keep pedalling at a steady rate and gives you time to find traction.
Stay confident (or get confident). You’ll learn quickly about balance and the sam hill method of cornering when your slipping and sliding (ie foot out speedway style-you don’t have todo this but it’s good).
Have fun…and a warm brew out of a flask when you get back to the carpark.
