is anyone still comuting to work in all this snow?
London's absoulutely fine on the main roads, i only have to tackle a 400 yard of backstreet snow in the morn so i'm still on the road bike. Will get icy tomorrow so might have to finally take the mtb out but the snow certainly isn't getting me on public transport eugh..no.. absolute chaos this afternoon.Posted 8 years agosmell_itMember
Last couple of days I've ditched the bike and run in, and I did the same the week before xmas, I'm hoping it don't continue too long as I'm knackered!!!Posted 8 years ago
I would like to thanks the home helps who walked nearly 5 miles through roads that were unpassable by car to help my mum and the others in her sheltered housing block, unbelievable stuff!jemimaMember
For some reason I've just started cycling to work. In my head it makes sense, for the following reasons:
a). Generally avoids traffic chaos (I get home even if it dumps down 6" during the day)Posted 8 years ago
b). Last minute training/punishment before the 'puffer
c). Some sort of new year resolution…jonbMember
Yep, 5 miles each way. I did it on my commuter today but had to walk/run up most inclines as I was on slicks running 42:14 gear. Tomorrow I'm on the mountain bike with a more sensible 32:18. I'm taking lights and setting off early. I don't expect it to take me much longer but I'm going to do a few extra bits on the way.
Absolutely deserted in Newcastle at 5pm this night. It was eerily quite.
I can't get out and ride as much when it's like this but the commute this morning felt like a good 20miles trying to push through the soft snow.Posted 8 years agoGrimyMember
My only way in to work on tuesday was on the bike. The only three staff who made it in to work before lunch were all cyclists. I was quite smug about that little fact. However, when I came to ride home again, I realised that without the tracks left by the odd motorist who had ventured out, it was a hell of a lot harder going if not just imposible.Posted 8 years agoARTSubscriber
Snow is generally Ok, it's the ice that's the problem. I came off on black ice the Mon before Xmas and still have the bruises below my knee and on my thigh now to show for it. 😥 Prefer biking to driving when the weather is like this for lots of the reasons above, but confess to being a bit timid after the off cause it blooming hurt! Just go careful.Posted 8 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I've been commuting on the Soul since about the 20th of December. It's either that or motorbike so for me it's not still commuting by pushiron despite the weather, it's only commuting because of the weather. Still, I know I'm going to get home at the end of the day, it's like commuting by tractor
My proper commuter on its slick 700cs is decent enough with snow but it's completely hopeless on refrozen ruts and footprints…Posted 8 years agocrispedwheelMember
Yep, still commuting to work on the bike – 4.5 miles each way. Swapped the SS commuter for the more sensible 32:16 P7 SS today. 6 inches of snow makes even the towpath interesting – much more fun ride into work this morning than usual! Only 4 people in work today, the other 3 walked so I got the satisfaction of the only tyre tracks on the office driveway.Posted 8 years ago
Absolutely no chance I'll take the bus, whatever the weather.
