    no idea on the temp but my fingers nearly fell off when i had to swap my brake pads and then fix a puncture…

    still had a brilliant ride though!

    Me! Devon. Took nearly 30 minutes for my fingers to thaw, ground was solid. Fast, fun and bumpy! 😆

    Beautiful clear day in ludlow, trails were bone dry and almost summer like. I had to sit in front of the fire for 30 mins before getting in shower, to stop the pain in my toes.

    Not many times ive had to do that in 25 years.

    -4.5 in Sheff but little water about so the trails round Ladybower were fast as chuff and not slippy. Some pinging off frozen tyre tracks but it was better than riding in summer today.

    Not as cold as some rides when I used to live in Eggland- just a base layer and a jersey but the winter gloves came out for only the 2nd time since I moved south.

    It was -5 this morning in Hexham, and I rode about 500m higher up, so that’s -10. Cold enough to kill the battery on the GPS until I got lower down again.
