Back Into Winter
What a strange week! It has been like we were plunged back into December with temperatures below freezing, almost constant westerly winds and a mixture of snow, rain and even ice.
Although cold the week began OK and the first couple of days were actually fine for riding to work. The wind, rain and snow put me off riding on Thursday and Friday after I had been thoroughly soaked riding home on Wednesday.
By the time we made it to Saturday things had deteriorated to the point that when I left the house for a ride in the morning I gave up before I started because the drive was covered in ice! Luckily the temperature had risen above freezing by mid-morning and I managed to get out for a nice ride, on the fat bike, in the early afternoon.
