Worst ever combo Water on Ice

by byrnee   December 19, 2011  

North Yorkshire's roads were shocking this morning. The combination of rain falling on icy roads made for a nasty fall on the commute today.

I've spoken to at least 4 people in the office who came off and one who's mother broke her ankle on her ride to work!

At least it wasn't windy though Smile

sounds nasty. down here in the SW it's just wet. no snow on the forecast either, might have to mothball the studded tyres...

Bit slippery here in Cambridge especially
shaded areas of the road.

Might use the mtb, although I'm
Hoping it will warm up over the next few
Days.

I like my bike but it needs a hidden 25cc motor Smile
