- So who is off for a ride in the snow today / tonight
Just got back from a quick spin round the woods 1st time I ended up on my arse was quite funny but it got boring after the 4th time and I couldnt see a thing because the snow kept building up on my gogs.
Riding through crisp snow sounds lovely riding through 4 inches of slippery slush is less attractive.
so I have come home for a hot shower a curry and a beer.Posted 9 years agomarkenduroMember
Rode home from work which is about 15 miles, mostly offroad, saw which way the weather was going this morning so put the fixed wheel into the grinbred and let some pressure out the tyres, it was mint but cold and it’s amazing how familiar trails grow new bumps and ruts which you never notice until they are covered in snow.Posted 9 years ago
managed an hour and a half – it was brilliant but hard going in the snow which was 6 – 12″ deep all the way up to Houndkirk! 🙂
Suprisingly not that cold but snow still coming down nice and steady!
Managed to overtake 4 cars and a motorbike going up hill on the road out of Nether Edge! 😀
Knee and elbow pads on incase of snow-sky-snow-sky incidents but none – it just wasnt possible to go fast enough to truely bin it!
Loads of lovely virgin snow to pile down through, big wide carving – well worth it!
Now, wheres the Laphroig……. 😉Posted 9 years agoAlasdairMcMember
Just on the commute today for me, but it was ace. The morning was pretty pishy, but the return was fun especially because I was faster than every car, especially those that gave up on the steep hill on the way home.
Proof, if ever any is needed, that the singlespeed is mightier than the car.Posted 9 years agoawMember
5 mile commute…all down hill in the morning and uphill on the way home. The downhill was pretty sketchy and I nearly wiped out a pedestrian on the way!
The steep uphill coming home was not so much fun but I cycled most of it. In parts the snow was too deep to turn the cogs!
I live in kent BTW 🙂
Tomorrow I am trying the MTB as today I was on the SS cyclo cross.Posted 9 years ago
