I haven't cycled for the last 2 weeks because of the icy weather, but yesterday the temperatures were just above freezing (3C) and the roads seemed ok. So I did a 15 mile circuit on my hybrid, which I thought would handle any black ice better. I also wanted to check that 3 pairs of socks (silk, then wool, then cotton) plus my neoprene overshoes kept my feet warm enough, which they did. I needed my Endura scullcap under my helmet too to stop my ears from falling off.
I was planning on meeting up with LEJOG friends to do Box Hill in Surrey yesterday, but we've postponed that for 2 weeks. I plan to return to cycling to work tomorrow too, and will continue to commute by bike twice a week or more, as usual.
