Back on topic this morning's commute was ok, well, on a Sunday at the back of 6am there's hope for the maniac drivers to still be in their bed. I even got a personal best ... on the tractor ... stuck in one gear! While I was at work, there was a heavy snow storm, followed by rain. The temperature went up to a couple of degrees above zero: result, by the time I was getting ready to ride back, the roads were a sea of semi frozen slush. Some drivers really don't care if a cyclist needs to keep to the clear bits of road, in case of hidden potholes! Me too, it has to be said, I did not behave impeccably, I'm afraid I skipped a red pedestrian light: it was uphill, I would have blocked traffic trying to start up again The pedestrian was still far away though. Anyway, I made it home in one piece, the bike was shedding icicles, had to spend ages drying and lubing. Forecast is an overnight defrosting, so back to my segregated route tomorrow, still on the tractor just in case of iffy stretches. Hopefully, that will be the last time till next winter. I love cycling in the snow for fun, but needing to be at work on time, in one piece, while the cars are sliding, does get a bit stressful!
