I ride in London all year round. It hardly ever snows here. And the road temperature /gritting usually does not usually get low enough to form ice.
However sometimes mother nature pulls out a joker and plays a hard (snow)ball….
Sometimes it can get icy or snow heavily and on those days I leave my bike at home. The problem is sometimes this happens when I’m already there or on my way… then getting home becomes a challenge.
I had couple occasions where I did end up riding in snow and it is scary. I would strongly suggest stopping and picking up the bike when weather improves… anyway have a look at my voyages where I was stupid enough to keep on going:
Sometimes you need to take a break as the bad weather continues… but after a week or two you will be really excited to get back on 🙂 :
Ride Safe (and Avoid snow/ice!)
