Commuting in the snow
February 8, 2007
With most of the UK shut down after only a few inches of snow this morning I decided to see what my ride would be like.
Keeping warm wasn’t a problem as it wasn’t any colder than earlier in the week but the view out onto the street was a little daunting.
Snow was still falling and cars were gingerly making their way down the street.
Once I got going it was fine. It didn’t take too long to get used to the difference in surface traction and the only real annoyance was the freezing flakes in my eyes. I can’t see me commuting in ski goggles so I’ll have to get some clear glasses if we’re going to have much more snow.
