Well that's February done. Had I not messed up my snow level estimations it wouldn't have been done, but I did mess them up, so phew. I thought the snow level was about 500m; it's not, it's about 400m, meaning that about 5-6km of the road over Fountains Fell was bedecked with white stuff. Melting white stuff, to be sure, but unnerving on smooth tyres. It wasn't helped much by having to roll along at walking pace for a fair way since a large flock of sheep was being moved along the road, just at a point when I'd warmed up nicely from climbing a few hundred metres and had about 12km of downhill to do - my clothing today wasn't intended for being stationary at 0C with a brisk wind for quite a long time. All that said, an excellent ride and agreat view of the Lake District hills, from the Cross of Greet, looking like a proper, spiky, snow-clad mountain range in the distance :-) Metric Eddington's are definitely the way to go. Mine's taken over a year to leap from 101 to 102. 103's going to be a while too I feel.
