The weather conditions continue to hold us back!! - it really is frustrating; we are desperate to get out on the road but the 'big freeze' makes it too dangerous to seriously contemplate.

I did manage a couple of very short rides last week, the temperature rose briefly to around 3 degrees - I had invested a considerable amount of money on a really powerful front light and I wanted to give it a proper test - it worked fantastically well - I ventured out at 6.00am in the morning, pitch black, but the light illuminated the road and (just as important) the edges of the road - I felt safe and extremely visible!! - Can't wait to be able to get out regularly again.....

Last Friday we went to London to visit the Tate Modern, it was -6, we were amazed how many cyclists were zipping around London in shorts!!! - So much for 'southern softies'.
