Some occasional musings on mountain bike rides and walks in North Yorkshire, with odd bit of discussion on mapping technology thrown in for good measure
Well, after several months of rain, greyness and wind, York has finally seen some snow. It's pretty rubbish snow, consisting of a dusting of snow, which soon vanished. It looked like there might have been a bit more on the hills. Under the snow was a nasty suprise. I was cycling to work on my very skinny-tyred fixed wheel bike, when suddenly the bike and I took off in different directions. Both the bike and myself were OK, but my trousers bore the brunt of the impact. Next day found me riding to work on something with a much thicker tyre. Nothing grips ice very well, but 2.1 trail rakers beat narrow road tyres everytime.
I was hoping for a nice ride or walk in the moors in deep snow. I'm not sure that's going to happen, which is a shame as riding is snow is great fun, and makes a nice change from the usual mud.
