And no loony descending, although I doubt you will be able to resist it.
Afraid I'm driving back from down south on Saturday, have a good safe ride all. Should be bracing!
We'll see - I have had a few offs on ice in the past and don't fancy doing that again!
And you have a safe drive!
If you fancy a relaxing slow ride later in the year, you know where to find us! (You could always do a slow, chatty outward ride with the group and solo back at warp speed ... )
THE RISK OF FALLS ON ICE IS TOO HIGH SO I AM PUTTING THE RIDE BACK FOR A WEEK OR TWO - WATCH OUT FOR A REVISED DATE LATER.
Current conditions of a light frost overnight and a tiny bit of give during the day are an ideal recipe for black ice.
You be aware an ice skate works because the blade forms a thin film of water on the rink which enables the skate to slip.
A narrow bicycle tyre ridden in a light thaw comes close to replicating rink conditions.
I will check out road conditions tomorrow. I won't get my 100 km in but I might do 50 km up and down the A646 and A6033. I am going a bit stir crazy, having only ridden 24 miles so far this year.
Has this ride been re-scheduled?
Oh, sorry @Stu Smith - I missed your post at the time!
I was just looking back over some of my old rides and stumbled across your message. The best thing to do in future is to tag me, the way I did in the first sentence. I get alerts for taggings and always respond to them.
It looks like the ride didn't go ahead but I have no recollection why not!
