...Well today I have to admit defeat. I have battled against heavy rain, cold, howling gales but I am drawing the line at ice. I will not ride today. The cars are still frosted ove ron the drive this afternoon and that tells me that there will be ice lurking in the shadows. I dont want to end up like my sister in law in Germany who hit ice on Monday, came off her bike, and is still in hospital. Hopefully this cold snap will go away soon.
