My girlfriend was visiting for the weekend and after she left I was sitting a bit grumpy in my house and realised it was really sunny and the sun was still out in the late afternoon and that I still had a few hours of light. I had been for a cycle with her on the roads the day before and noticed some trails looked kind of rideable so thought I would go and check it out to see what I could ride.
The way up proved to be almost impossible to ride with either ice or deep snow stopping efforts to ride to the top. The way down however I realised I had my tyre pressures quite high so I let them down as much as I dared (to about 15-20psi) and then it worked!!!
I love riding on the snow!!! it provides so much excitement as there is a lot of grip but then also there isn’t, you can get pretty wild and loose sliding about. Considering I had not ridden my bike in about 6 weeks I quite enjoyed it!
