London going to be hell tomorrow
MTB here too.
I'd argue it's way safer than a car, and probably safer than public transport*. Either way it'll be faster. And more fun. You can also cut straight across all the commons and parks.
The last lot of snow/sleet/ice we had, the fixie was actually fairly manageable, in a sketchy sphincter twitching kinda way.
* it'll certainly be safer for the poor sod who would otherwise be stuck sitting next to me when I lose the plot.Posted 8 years agomarsdenmanMember
About 1 cm
thats what a mate said when she got the train into Manchester this morning and heard there had been snow in the city…
she got of the train at Victoria and walked out into 6" of snow……
Oh, how I do hope it really snows in London Village tomorrow – can't wait for the headlines – it'll be like it's never snowed before 😀Posted 8 years agoononeorangeSubscriber
Looks like 20cm for LondonPosted 8 years agomieszkoMember
I had some scary moments on Friday night in Edinburgh due to ice on road and not taking the MTB. Road bike made it but had to go really slow and brakes were hopeless as well. Next day I just went on the MTB, put some mudguards on and I was at work quicker then my friend on the bus. Wear warm clothes, put some mudguards and just enjoy the ride in snow no MTFU required. No grip or braking issues with normal tyres and disc brakes.Posted 8 years agowoffleMember
snow = fine. ice = scary. Have been doing my usual commute today and yesterday and I prefer it when it's been snowing – it's not got above freezing for a good few days and on the country roads there's not a gritter to be seen so some scary black ice is getting worse. Not sure riding will be a very good idea tomorrow but we'll see whether the doom and gloom weather forecasters get it wrong or right again…
that said, even if I do get out and to a station, regardless of which one – I've zero confidence in the trains running so don't think it'll be worth venturing out anyway.Posted 8 years ago
