    Melting Snow !

    Well we've had a few days with temps in the 50's degrees / 10's Celsius range so the snow is melting. Makes for a fun wet, sandy, and salty ride with the arm and leg warmers on. I've stayed away from the trails as the thaw starts and most likely won't visit the trails for a couple of weeks. But...

    snow covered roads?

    I haven't ridden on snow covered auto roads in quite some time, not since the year round commutes of 2009-2010. I remember riding in the right hand tire track (US) it might be fun to try on a quite Sunday morning, with no actual auto traffic. or maybe not. this was the scene driving home from...

    First snow ride of the season.

    We had our first snow fall of the season yesterday, so it was off to play in the woods. I got soaked from all the low hanging branches covered in snow. I was only wearing my Fall cycling clothing because the temps weren't cold enough for my winter gear yet. Still had a wet blast and also ran...

    We need snow !

    The winter started off great and it wasn't long before the trails were covered with snow. But the second half of January we have had above average temps with plenty of rain to help get rid of the snow. Now what we have left is mostly an ice base so you best be running studs. I'm hoping February...

    Finally some New Snow.

    We finally got some new snow, now it's time to make some tracks. I wore my hiking boots today instead of my shoes for my clipless peddles. I knew it would be a bike and hike kind of day, but I still had a ton of fun. Looking forward to getting out during the week once more snowmobiles have...

    Snow tads?

    Not a lot of recumbents that I've seen here in Wyoming where almost all new bikes are either big box, gravel grinders, box or varieties of mountain bikes. I am curious as to how tads do with snow and ice. Any experience with this?

    Snow watch - how is it where you are?

    SE Lakeland. Falling steadily and it's turning white out there.
  14. SpokeyDokey

    Freezing cold.

    -6C here - SE Lakes. Thin crusting of snow over ice on the local lanes but main roads gritted and clear. Turbo weather! How cold where you are?

    Snow around here is so deep......

    I went for my normal walk this morning. The snow is incredibly deep I lost my pet. If anyone finds a Giraffe that answers to the name Albert will you let me know please.

    Do you love or loathe snow?

    Hate the stuff. This year it's cost lives in the UK and on a personal level totally messed up my schedule, so many things have had to be cancelled, I'm snowed in and going stir crazy.

    Question about riding in snow esp. for those with the proper tyres

    I've cycled to and from work today - there is about 8 inches of snow on the shed roof at home, but out and about there is less and on the roads it's been compacted. It's generally been quite fun, althoguh I need thicker gloves. I've been on 2" knobblies and it's been fine - I've not fallen off...

    Beaten by the snow!.

    Sad day today, for 1st time in at least 10 years I'm not biking to work!. Yesterday was just stupid on my thinnish tyres and compacted snow (nearly had 3 offs), cars seem to carry on regardless.. Hiking boots on today and a snowy walk in!. Good luck anyone braving the snow today on 2 wheels...

    Got caught in snow...

    But I had Schwalbe Marathons on and I made it round fine. It was more sleet than snow at times but it did get dicey at times. Glad I got out though. Was fun. I'm continuously disappointed with overshoes - my Grip Grabs did not keep me snug for long. I even had some carrier bags over my socks...

    Extreme cycle commuting!

    I'm not in Canada or Scandinavia, it's only a few inches of snow! Still, there will not be any public transport from my area tomorrow, or it will be very limited. Scotland Police put an alert on social media .... panic! Don't travel if the journey is not essential! Well, I work weekends and I've...

    slick tyres and snow/slush

    Normally at this time of year, i swap my slickish tyres for nobbly tyres... but i threw the old nobblies out after last winter. Should i take my chances riding fat slick tyres in the snow, or go and buy some nobblies?

    Snow foam, bikey no likey.

    A mate of mine told me his son had taken to cleaning his bike with Snow Foam. He'd use the foam then rinse off with water however the residual chemicals in the foam had seized the pedal threads, QR bolts and badly damaged other parts on the bike. I can't vouch for how well the lads bike was...

    How about snow and ice?

    Most of those on this forum seem to live in the UK. In the last 24 hours here in central Wyoming we have had 8 + inches of snow and the temps never got above 24 degrees Fahrenheit. Tonight and for the next few days we'll have -0 nights and 10 degree days. I will just walk for a couple of days...
