    Was going to do a Reliability Trial this Sun. in Wales. :biggrin: I fear I will prove unreliable as I find no pleasure whatsoever in rinding in sub zero temperatures up steep mountain roads!! ;)
    Call me a wuss if you like and I'm sure some will ride, just to say "I'm 'ard I am," as they succumb a few days from now to intestinal disorder brought on by cold energy drinks consumed when in extremis.:biggrin:
    Question is, what would you do? :blush:

  3. Dunno what it was like in Oswestry, but a bit further North in Cheshire it was a glorious morning, sun glinting off the snow, roads almost all clear apart from a few bits under hedgerows in shadow, by lunchtime all melted away.
    Different story after 3pm however...then it was rain and hail squalls, headwind, fairly cold.
