due to weather and door hanging duties i haven’t ridden since last weekend so was determined to make the most of today. i started to fit a new rear mech yesterday evening but darkness and rain defeated me, so i got up early today to finish it.Very cold and frosty conditions greeted me and the rain that was on the bike yesterday was frozen hard even in the shed. it then began to snow!, mech fitted and the temp only being about one degree away from as warm as it was going to get i headed off. it was cold but not too bad, the lower trails were icy and muddy but the top of the Alp was covered in a light dusting of snow. it was great to play about in so i thought i’d head over to to the Waseleys and see if there was more. On the way “bono” was very icy and entertaining, but sadly the Waseleys had escaped the snow and were just frozen and windy. i came back via the cheeky route and back into the Lickeys using the duckpond and steps.
