    You got hit bad in UK this time.

    A bit unprepared as far as dressing up but +1 for bringing the lights
    I'm still waiting for some decent snow to come in DK, all it has come to this far is cold, windy and rainy with some mist thrown in once in a while. I love the way your tyres are clean as new when youre riding snow

    Some of the uk is getting some more tonight.

    I have a pair of trousers in my bag just incase then wind gets very cold.It was at freezing point when i went out.The road i was on in the 2nd picture was like an ice skating ring later on.I had my lights just in case.

    Looks like that here in North Devon too. More forecast for tonight...maybe there'll be a rush on Surly Pugsley's in the southwest ;-)

    I just hope Tidybeard got his lambs in in time.

    Nice pics Norcosam, good to see the Brits flying the flag for shorts in the snow.

    Too early for lambs yet, they'll be along in about six weeks. We've had quite a bit of snow here - this evening there was a snowfall for about an hour that disrupted my eveningly ritual of sitting in front of the TV eating takeaway with my hand down my pants. The snow meant we couldn't get satellite reception and the takeaway couldn't deliver. The hand is safely ensconced though

    Went out again on the flux today and did 20+ miles..Did one of our cliff paths and the head wind (20-25mph) was hard going and the track was very muddy.
    I seem to like riding this bike.Never really used to ride much xc but i like it on this bike.Only thing i dont like is the rp3,setup for my weight it feels dead and uncontrolled on the rebound and the propedal is to firm even on the lowest setting.Thinking about pushing it and getting it serviced.

    Thanks for that image TB

    Tried to ride local in Devon today (we do so like to keep it local round here, just check the genotypes). Spent about half an hour walking through snowy mudslush before giving up and going to the offie instead.
    Fed up of winter. At least if we had properly cold temperatures then it might feel worthwhile. Mheh.
