    22 miles round the chase today. First time in deep snow but I loved it – hard work on the ups, fun on the downs and a few hilarious falls. Bostin πŸ™‚

    20 odd miles in the Pentlands for me today, huge fun on my old Kona Kilauea. Tons of grip and no offs

    Lots of good banter from folks about too. No pics sadly as phone battery died as usual.

    Exhausted now but a toasty glow from a fun day

    Bloody enigmas are everywhere! Mine looked like Kuco’s ^^ after 20 miles with eyerideit this morning. Lots of fun!

    Really nice ride only one off not by me though…my mate on the retro FSR.

    Went for a ride around Devil’s Punch Bowl via Gibetts Hill and some cheeky single track on the way home. Great to be out, only 2nd proper ride in as many months.

    Stopped to make some yellow snow and take a photo.

    I enjoyed a few hours of pushing today round Sutton Bank/Lake Gormire/Kilburn Woods.

    Was tough going and didn’t get much riding in.

    Bushed after 2:30 ride around devils Punchbowl. Fun climbs and descents on Thursley Common and the higher bits on the Punchbowl – I avoided the main BW after Higfhfield Lane (?)/cattle grid and had a few adventures in the deep snow on some of the paths at the top. Nice of the quad bikes to have a few tracks in places!!! Not a single person passed except for the sledgers on Rodborough common. Great laugh in the snow but noticeably colder that yesterday morning. Only just got in before the light went, Feet de-thawing now…..Aaargh

    Only intended to go out for a little 15km spin this morning, but it was actually really nice and grippy so I stayed out and ended up getting nearly 40km in. Apart from a couple patches of sheet ice, my Rubber Queen and X King combo coped brilliantly with the conditions (as they did with all the wet and mud recently) – for the riding I do I might have found a decent all-year round tyre setup!

    Nice work Rocketdog, bacon and sausages cooked out on a ride taste so much better.

    Murr and I did a 40 mile epic over the Lomond and Cleish hills. the road sections joining the trails were equally challenging. Top ride, just made it back before darkness fell. Good endurance training for the Puffer for Murr.

    Couple of people saying that they had the hills to themselves. Up Rivington and Winter Hill it was blowing a gale and pretty damned cold. The place is normally crawling with walkers and today there were very few but i reckon there were more Mountain Bikers and runners out than i’ve ever seen before!

    Five hardy souls set out for some snowy bridleway bashing around Ilkeston and Strelley this morning – one on Ice Spikers, the other four on their backsides at regular intervals.

    I just love riding in snow, but the bridleways are still 6 inches of soggy churned up hoof prints under that snowy coating in places. Was a great ride, shame it took so long that the traditional tea and bacon cob stop only had time to be a tea stop

    Nice change from grinding out the road miles – lo-res mobile pic only unfortunately. Being the first through 15cm deep snow was hard going…

    Got a little bit heavy going in the wind drift above Lowsonford Warwickshire yesterday morning! A bit of walking in knee deep snow required….but great getting “first tracks” down some of the local bridleway hills….

    Out today and only saw a few mtbers and they were all locals, whom I knew.

    I was aksed by a group of about 13 walkers, ‘that it would be best if I stopped and let them get past’, on a particular stretch of trail. A please andor a thankyou off any of them would have been nice. Gosh I’m getting grumpy.

    Everyone else I past was in high spirits due to the snowy weather.

    Yep. Two of us did a 20mile Calderdale loop from Worsthorne. Brilliant day out! Surprisingly grippy virtually all the way round, apart when I went OTB on Dukes Cut…

    No riding but spent 5 hours walking in a whiteout on South Downs Way. Quite a few runners out (must’ve been hard going) and was passed by one guy rattling along at a hell of a pace on a 29er. Great day. Much more interesting than average winter day

    After yesterday’s failed attempt, it was ace to get a good ride out today north of Leek. I feel like I’ve had a thoroughly good workout and frankly I’m ready for bed.

    43 miles around Brickhill woods and various trails (and a bit of tarmac!) in north Bucks and Bedfordshire. Cold but fantastic.
