Meanwhile, in the Arctic Circle...
It was seemingly colder than Antarctica north of here on Monday night/Tuesday morning. Alas, we, in the milder Central Belt were just colder than the Arctic.
It's been a week since the snow came, and to be honest, I'm starting to get a little tired of it. At the risk of losing my hard-earned reputation as an all-weather mentallist, I'm actually wishing for skinny tires or even rain, just something else for a change. A chance to get the miles in, instead of taking an eternity to cover a small amount of ground, stopping every so often to clear cleats or pedals, always conscious of the slippyness under the snow, wondering how deep the next drift is.
That said, today's ride was still fun. The sun made a brief appearance between snowstorms and avoiding the deep areas made a difference to the frequency of breaks to clear pedals and cleats.
Time to check the weather forecast. Oh, more snow. Ah well.....I suppose it's festive. ;-)
