Hmm...have to admit it's been a ....Christmas. And the five weeks before
But the 25 mile round ride over the moors on Christmas Day, with an inch of snow on the road and a bike not fitted with "full winter kit" , c/w thin, inadequate karrimor gloves, whilst below freezing and £0.99 battery lights standing in for the £80.00 state of the art dynamo lights still in the cupboard? (Nb. Have to admit my bike wasn't "legal", no legal pedals, nor front reflector )
Fantastic ride. Helped on meeting my 79 yr old mother at the end of it, still complaining it's not really winter (Nb. Suppose they used to close school at -26 when I was a kid, but to my mother, it had to be below -30). In the UK they start to panic at 0 . God, they're soft ). They haven't got wolves, never mind bears, it's unreal (Nb. Suppose we had steel trash cans and they were kept indoors in winter, just in case)
