I set off in 5c and it just got colder the higher up I went, not much trail-riding the single track roads were bad enough, several close to impassable with snow drifts for anything other than an off-roader. The Peak District can get a bit wild for somewhere not that high up.

Riding 86 miles in those temps got right into my bones. I had got well clobbered up with a T shirt, wind stopper shirt, pullover, gillet, fleece & then my textile jacket but I couldn't move & looked like the Michelin man so came back in & took the fleece off, big mistake. Fortunately I only landed in the snow once, good job it's soft stuff.

There gets a point where it doesn't matter how cold it is... you just gotta get out and ride some. I go until my fingers and toes get numb, and that's usually enough. It takes a while to warm back up after that. I wish I had some trails close enough that I could get to them without being frozen before I get there.

There are roads not trails





This is the only thing that could warm me up, headed off to a chippy for some hot grub & a brew.

All that snow piled up really accentuates the cold. I'm not sure that 2nd picture qualifies as a road, but looks like good riding and a good meal. laugh

Aye m8, that 2nd pic is a tarmac surfaced road between 2 villages, or should be. As you can see there's only been a tractor down it before me, & I fell off in the snow, soft landing.

FFs (chips as you call them in England) are my only fried food weakness. We make them at home now with a shoestring FF cutter in proper fresh oil & potatoes usually to go along with a cheeseburger. The meal is right up there with what you get from In/Out Burgers. Just glad you're back and talking about food. Signs of life and health! Take care.

Best - Scott

This is why sensible folk never leave England, Nowhere else can we get proper Fish & chips. It is the food of the gods.
