    First Tracks by paulfulford, on Flickr

    Just for an hour. Been off the bike for a month so found it especially hard!

    Only a half hour local spin.
    I’m sure snow riding has to be amongst the best training you can do for bike handling…?
    All that drifting, sliding, weight shift and correction.

    I un-bolted the trucks from my old skateboard and dragged the nipper round for a bit which was a laugh. πŸ˜€

    I wish πŸ˜† Planned a normal ride, however turned around after about 5 miles! Main roads were ok, very wet and cold, but the side roads were just annoyingly slow!

    early morning in NW London

    Stanmer park in Brighton, a pathetic 5.5 miles in well over two hours but the laughs, lack of grip and the many “where’s the singletrack? the trails gotta be here somewhere…” issues made up for the lack of distance πŸ™‚

    I got out for a snow ride at 7am, but unfortunately there was more snow in Newcastle than on the hills… Still had a brilliant pre work ride and loved the sound of crunching frost…

    Went out for a couple of hours and took the bike whoose brakes do no work in the cold snow. Should have thought of that. Riing in Glesmford/Standsed/Long Melford area in Suffolk. Slow going.

    Two hours round Swinley. Worn Maxis Ignitors were no match for the 2.4 inch Nobby Nics. Pretty lethal by about 4PM. But my collar bone had a thorough testing 😳

    This.

    Just a quick loop of some local woods for me today, but great twitchy fun with the Trailrakers proving themselves to be half decent tyres in loose fresh snow.

    A great morning ride on largely untracked virgin snow with hardly anyone about in Warwickshire between Dorridge and Henley in Arden…..over 15cm deep in places with the front wheel spending as much time going sideways as forwards at times!

    An early start from Dorridge bundled up against the -1ΒΊ outdoor temp…the 37 km route way pointed on the phone using viewranger app and OS 1:25000 mapping….the only way I don’t get horribly lost! by kiwifiz, on Flickr[/img]

    Late afternoon pootle near Derby;

    It didn’t do a lot for my averages…

    Decent ride this morning. The aroma of the bacon was too much on the way home though….

    Nice collection of Enduros/ SX’s there.

    I did about 5 miles this evening and the snow had turned to slush there was no grip anywhere I was all over the place. It wasn’t ideal conditions to be testing the new bike.

    I had no falls but my brother had some comedy ones especially as it was his first time on SPDs.

    theboatman, didn’t your mudguards just clag up with snow?

    Sorry for appalling quality, mobile pic and the white/black didn’t help!

    These pics posted on another thread but here again. Was round Austwick/Clapham. Very crappy low down but clear, blue, calm up on the tops. A fantastic day.

    Tracker1972 – the snow was melting, so quite sloppy if you stayed out if the white stuff.
