    No. No. No.

    I’ll be forced to do my weekend riding on the bloody turbo trainer. You wouldn’t wish such a hideous fate on me, would you?

    OTOH Toddler North would appreciate a snow fight I reckon. And a snowman.

    Fortunately, the BBC has forecast bucket-loads for my locations so I can be pretty certain it’s going to either be bone dry or just rain.

    I hate the snow! Don’t know what the big attraction is for some.

    Makes driving, riding, working and getting about a lot harder and more dangerous.

    I drive for a living so if I can’t get to where I need to be then my bank balance suffers aswell.

    NO SNOW!

    However I’m sure it will be the wrong kind and we will grind to a halt anyway.

    May I remind you sir, that you live in the North West of England. There’s simply no excuse!!
    Get the bloody mountain bike out. Riding in the snow is a right old laugh!!!!

    This x1000 The already sodden trails that were just beginning to get rid of the slightest bit of water will now be **** again and people that don’t grasp the basic concepts of physics will be causing chaos on the road 🙁

    I can honestly say I’ve never seen a correct yr.no forecast for Edinburgh. Even BBC Weather’s more accurate!

    Might be some in the chilterns monday evening 🙂 I love riding in the snow, almost my favourite conditions

    Icy conditions forecast here in the SW. Spending the weekend doing water rescue training in the river Dart, which will be fun! 😯

    There won’t be any water in the dart next week. Trying to get out tomorrow to get the last of it before it dries up…

    Drying up, being of course, relative.

    Got an exam the day snow is forecast, and an exam on Tuesday. Snow is welcome any day other than Monday or Tuesday.

    Whether or not the snow comes the temperatures are looking very cold next week so hopefully we will have hard ground to ride on for a change!

    They are already talking about cancelling a local sportive this weekend due to snow and ice, and that’s down south! Can’t wait for some nice frosty trails though.

    According to the Met Office, I will be crashing my car without warning tomorrow 🙁

    Won’t happen as I bought a 4×4 last month, last time we had a 4×4 it never snowed.

    I’ll have you know I am quite capable of crashing while driving under the influence speed limit, thank you very much!

    Conversely, here on them there Pennine Hills (West Yorkshire variant thereof) we’re forecast nowt in the the way of the white stuff.
    Given the above forecast I will mostly be hooking out the snowshoes and buffing them to within an inch of their lives 🙂

    Thought this was about something different. Our ever reasonable loyalist protester are having a different kind of standstill right about now. I hope they all **** off home soon, so I can get home too.

    Dull n damp in the ‘shire. Good stuff. Snow is alright for a couple of days, then it’s sh1t.

    I was thinking about going to Glentress on Mon. I’ll definitely be going now 😀

    I love snow days and glad no one can get out.
    If you give people a day off in this country they load up the car and join the traffic jams for whatever hell hole shopping centre they like.
    Snow days people get out and walk, have a sledge and talk to their neighbours. Bring it on.
