    Freezing rain on top of the snow here. Walking, driving or cycling is a joke. Seen so many people nearly wipe themselves out and then get stuck outside my house it's just not funny. I would move my car if I thought I could! Going out on treader shortly though. Traditional innit!

    I have not long got back from a quick 1.5 hour blast around my local, after I managed to slice my index finger quite badly on the disc rotor… 🙁

    Yep, had a a couple of hours out, the look of bewilderment on people's faces when encountering a girl on a mountain bike in the snow made it well worth it !! 😀

    Cycling along today,along the promenade,and there was a scream behind me, an elderley lady,fell backwards on sheet ice,and cracked her head,massive lump,she was with 2 other people, and luckily her husband was stil at home and came to pick her up in the car.
    They didnt have a mobile,i did,so rang the husband.

    Lesson learnt always carry a mobile.

    Got back an hour or so; only out for an hour and a bit – several km… was hard work in several inches of snow that's starting to turn a tad slushy!

    crazy icy today- did 2 hours

    Feel much better now thanks to a change in diet and some new supplements – no cold extremitys anymore (not something ive been bothered with till the last 2 months) and more energy

    got fed up of riding on glass in the end though.

    Did a short, local loop on the way into work this morning – R8 icy. Wonder how bad it'll be on the way home @ 20.00?

    Took the dog for a walk and realised that an ice rink covered in a film of water is not the place for pedestrians (2 or 4 legged), cars or cyclists. Just mental. It's gonna freeze again tonight so I'll give it a go then but today was never gonna happen.

    Went for a spin up salisbury plain, sheet ice everywhere. had a few moments before i was sliding down the road on my arse. just a banged elbow tho. really beautiful day tho, snow and clear blue skies, not a bad start to christmas day.

    I went for a 13 mile ride arond the lanes with my mum (she's 63 so no jokes about poor effort please) down here in Devon. Glorious day out, and didnt see a soul. The majority missed out on a great day to be outside I reckon.

    Blue skies around Salisbury, lovely day out although only managed about 20 miles. No real snow, few bits of interesting ice to be had.

    Rode Hindhead today, very misty but brightened up to blue skys, white Christmas my @r$£. Great to have that 'what have you done this morning' feeling at the dinner table.
    Mind you the cognac and mince pies were a welcome post ride nibble 😀

    Well done Ticklinjock. Good dedication. That Swayndo is being gay and ,aking noises about it being too deep and having a sore knee. He's changed……….

    We also rode Malvern yesterday – Christmas Day riding makes the day great 😀

    Bit sketchy in places though 😯

    Not a bit of snow or ice here on the Wirral (as usual we don't get it) didn't manage to get a ride in either as there is just too much to do @ home.

    had an early morning single speed and sections that are usually gravel and rideable all year were 1/2" thik sheet ice, funny as hell but it made for some intersting hill climbing antics… power down on a frozen grassy bank/bermy bit, mince across ice vaguely aiming for anything with traction (leaves,tree roots, dead badger) as soon as the rear wheel doesn't spin out, sprint and aim for next bit of traction. Frozen horse poo is very grippy!

    We did a Boxing Day ride to Totnes and back. Almost all the ice had melted, the ground had thawed and it's all gone back to mud 🙁

    One of our intrepid party suffered an 'overdone it a bit yesterday' Xmas relapse halfway round and had to call his domestic taxi to fetch him home 😉
