Frosty roads this morning, proper winter cycling.

Roads were treacherous this morning. In areas shaded from the low and weak winter sunshine of recent days, the build up of several frosts made it look like snow. I’m a lover of snow but when on the bike and it is hard and icy the is no more love. When it is like this I tend to stay off the cycle lanes and stick to the main roads as they are more likely to have been gritted and salted. Going slower and not making sudden movements when you hit unavoidable patches of ice also helps. Do you have any advice or tips for cycling during the winter on icy roads? If so let me know by commenting below…
