Real fun and sketchy ride in a frozen world yesterday.
Most of the main trails in Epping and Hainault were covered in ice resulting from snow packed by walkers footsteps and after going sideways a few times to many I gave up my plan of riding further out, but instead rode some single tracks trails that are typically too boggy to ride with CX tyres at this time of the year. Pretty surreal conditions.
Had to use hot water at home for the ice to thaw before I could clean the bike from the little spashes of frozen mud, yet it was so cold that the soapy water would freeze back onto the bike! That was a first..
