What I learnt today...


Recommended Posts

Good to see some bikes out and about on my way to work this morning. I was tempted to take the car but changed my mind at the last minute. Pleased I did. A couple of hairy moments, but I did it so I could learn! So what did I learn?!:

1) Avoid the middle of the road on dual carriageways! Well, mostly. My first slip occurred when filtering and I didn't account for the area between lanes retaining ice for longer. Just a minor slip at very low speed, but I was still a bit 'whoah!' as it was the first time I've slipped on ice!

2) Cars might try to stop at junctions but if there is ice they can just slide out in front of you!

3) It's a but unnerving to come to a stop and realise there is no grip under one of your wheels and your foot is slipping on the road. Slowly does it!

Still, all in all it was a good ride. The best part was the copper in the bus lane ordering all the cars out of it and stepping back on the pavement to let me through. Thanks, mate!
