As England ground to a snow-induced halt on Thursday, I decided to prove the forecasters wrong by venturing out into it. Armed with a pair of Hutchinson Equinox tyres, various layers of clothing and plastic, and a complete denial of the weather, I set off along the Bath-Bristol bike path in the wee hours of the morning. 15 km later, on the outskirts of Bristol, I skidded to a halt in a couple of cm of snow. Mission accomplished.

Anyone else get out on Thursday?
