Snow doesn't stop play (or cycling)
Things got a bit snowy a few days ago and with a cold morning start on Monday the commute had to be by Mountain Bike - big tyres, low gears and seat slightly lower than normal and off you go.
Light on the bars, smooth on the pedals and your rear wheel will follow the front most of the time. Any slipping and sliding is quite good for generating warmth and slowing you down so no cold hands or feet. That slipping and sliding is great for your balance and confidence and most of all it adds to the fun and the sense of achievement.
