Snow Ride

I blew away a few cobwebs earlier with a ride out from Kępno.
It had been snowing before I set off and so the layers of black ice that covered the roads were masked with a fresh covering making staying upright and moving forward at the same time quite a challenge. The further I got from town, the less traffic had compacted the last months’ worth of snow and the easier it became.

Air temperature was -8 Celsius (17F) that meant my breath froze onto my beard in lumps.

After 12km or so I headed into the forests. Logging work continues whatever the weather and so the tracks through the woods were passable.

The route is here if you’re at all interested.

Critical Mass in Wrocław on Friday, followed by a party in the Rynek (one of the most beautiful squares in Europe) and then on to the Czech Republic on Saturday for a couple of days of budget skiing…
