- Is anyone else looking forward to Autumn and Winter riding?
Not a fan of constantly getting covered in mud and sh1t etc. So more road miles is the norm for me.
I’ve also noticed that when other people say the weather is too grim to do anything, I chirp up with “No such thing as bad weather, just bad choice of clothing.” Yet even with a load of decent gear myself, I still find the odd excuse to not get out there.Posted 4 years agojoolsburgerMember
I love the mud really. I enjoy sticking on the waterproof shorts and winter shoes and sliding around like a mad thing in the woods. I also like the lack of other people, hot tea and rolls mid ride that really warm you through, never over heating and hardly sweating after hours in the saddle. Bike cleaning is no biggie,letting it dry and hoovering it off works well enough. I’m lucky that my local rides aren’t clay or claggy just standard earthy mud that comes off in the next puddle. As for the snow is there anything better than snow rides? Utter silence bar the noise of crunch under your tyres. I love the summer but I am really looking forward to the next 6 months. I must be mad but I really do prefer the winter, best of all frozen trails on a sunny winter morning, nothing better.Posted 4 years agofasthaggisMember
Yup,Autumn (as long as it’s not too wet) is ace and really looking forward to the mid week night rides.
I could do without all the increased layering on the commute and faffing about how much back up to take with me,cape or big jacket,overshoes or boots.Posted 4 years ago
Think I may leave more spare stuff at work this Autumn/Winter so I save carrying so much back and forward.TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsSTRSubscriber
Considering it will be the depths of winter when I’m next riding, yes!
Gutted to miss the end of summer and autumn though – was really getting my mojo back. Will now have to get to grips with my bike handling skills thrown straight into the slippy stuff.Posted 4 years ago
