I just want to ride my bike!!!

By Rob Spedding | Tuesday, January 12, 2010 10.17am

Here at Cycling Plus we spend a lot of time riding. It's one of the perks of the job. The last few weeks, then, have been pretty darned miserable. Ice, snow, more ice...riding a bike on the roads around Bath has been nigh on impossible. The main roads have been okay-ish - if you don't mind dicing with drivers who've scraped just a letter-box sized hole in the snow on their windscreens...

Sing hossanas, then, as yesterday it seemed as if a mini-thaw had set in. So, I hopped on to a bike and took to the roads for the first time in at least a fortnight. It felt brilliant! The roads were still reasonably free of cars - skivers! - and little beats a bit of cold air to blow away the cobwebs. Aaah, bliss...for fifteen bleeding minutes and then the chain snapped. At least I got some decent exercise tottering back to the office on icy pavements in cycling shoes...
