- So who else braved it today?!
Tomorrow, bike out with knobbly mud tyres on. Couldn’t do today, was driving home from working week away. That was entertaining enough in a rear wheel drive automatic.
Best thing about the snow is dumping the car and playing on the bike, although it does encourage those special looks from the neighbours and local townsfolk.Posted 6 years agodoom_mountainSubscriberjamesoSubscriber
Dead jealous of the amount of snowfall in everyone’s pics, Keswick hasn’t seen any snow below about 200m
I’d swap you our few inches of powder for those mountains!Posted 6 years ago
Rode out on fast icy trails for an hour or 2 this am, then came back into the wind and snow.. hard going and suprisingly arctic on the hill tops with snow coming in at near 90 degrees and powder blowing along the ground. Tundra-epic )gofasterstripesSubscriber
Rode in in cold, expecting amusing sideways ride back on Thorn Raven with knobblies. Went to get bike at 4 [drivers all wanted to leave early] only to discover:
1) The warehouse heater had burst my rear tyre
2) I had forgotten to pack a spare tube
3) The glue in the puncture kit had gone off

1) Accepted lift back in van, unbelievably cross.
2) Dropped off at Halfords – purchased 3 innertubes [£8.99 to fit?!?! No thanks!]
3)Rode around mostly sideways for 1 hour
4)Returned home, drank a beer and took the rabbits out on leads in the snow 🙂
