    Snow watch - how is it where you are?

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

    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......so 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...

    A dusting of snow and the London shuts down!

    How often does that sort of comment appear, accompanied by something like: "Ha! just look at Canada! Months of snow and never a problem!. Bloody government!" D1's WhatsApp from the bus to work in Vancouver this morning (Vancouver time..): "I'm having a nightmare getting to work, the busses...

    Problem with the Snow ?

    Met Office have issued a Yellow Snow Warning for tomorrow

    I suspect it's not the same sort of warning about yellow snow my dad used to issue. Or is it?

    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...

    Huge snowfall going on here in SE Cumbria at the moment. How's it with you?

    Is anyone else looking out of the window at snow on the ground?

    Not much I'll be granted, but it's there.

    Winter is coming - preps

    The garden was splashed with morning sun at 0700 this morning but I could feel the precursor of Autumnal chill on my skin. Maybe an Indian Summer will ghost through later, but we're headed for the dark times eventually. Rather than delay, I made a few changes to commuting rig ahead of time. -...
