I've done it many times here. If the roads are dry, then I find it's fine, just wrap up warm. I appreciate that's big 'if' in the UK: here we have hard dry winters.we have some cold weather coming in.
It looks like dry but cold weather but am anxious about ice especially in cycle paths etc and it's not like I am going to see anything.
Would you cycle in 0 degrees for 17 miles?
