Brilliant photos, Matt. Where were they taken?
It's an ill wind that never blows at all.

Martin - photos were around Painswick Beacon which is where the trig point is. Easily reachable from home without having to go on the roads much, they were mostly sheet ice.

Dro - My bike is well camouflaged in the snow but I think you can just about make it out.......

Clear evidence that your bike went but did you :lol:

I spent a pleasant couple of hours on the Ridgeway on Sunday - i think it was about 3 degrees warmer :shock: Suprisingly high amounts of grip up hill but hard down hill as you hit the small drifts and have to pedal.

See you on a trail soon.

Cheers

Looks like a new bike to me :???: Does Santa come early up in Gloucestershire?
If found, please return to the pub.

Nearly right there Ian. Santa did come early, or at least his cut price brother Santa Cruz from ebay-land, Superlight and frame only. The Norco has now been upgraded to extinction.

Merry Crimbo. :D
