Good lord the roads are proper shit today. Layers of ice and slush and lots and lots of rump braille snow. I went slow, and steady, and rode straight upright and didn’t have any problems with slipping, but damn it was a bit nerve wracking on the hills. It was grade A gross. But you know what, even crawling at half speed, even though my toes were a little wet, and even though it was super putrid out, it WAS STILL BETTER THAN TAKING THE BUS!
It wasn’t that cold, it wasn’t that nasty, and I got home only 10 minutes slower than normal.
I saw other cyclists, and I saw evidence of their trails, so I know I wasn’t the only yahoo out there today, share your adventures below.
