I've still been attempting to go cycling. I'm quite impressed at the amount of grip I'm getting with my tyres that are meant to be for dry dusty conditions. I'm getting more grip than I do in the mud! Its a different story in deep snow which is impossible but thanks to folk dragging their kids about on sledges the trails have compact snow in the midldle of them, but if you go off these bits its up to the axles in snow. HB even had a shot of the bike on the Winton Estate which now has much more grip on it than GHC experienced due to all the snow, rather than the ice rink it was before. The other thing thats been hindering me is the gear cables, they freeze up and stop the rear mech working, so I can't go up the gears. I usually only need first gear anyway as I find it easier to keep going if my legs are spinning quite fast. I've stole my mum's spare hairdryer to defrost them after a run.

That was yesterday, I recon we had another half a foot of snow today!
