Riding on icy roads
By Andy Chivers
Regular bike riders need to cope with all sorts of weather conditions, and this December we have had a prolonged spell of cold weather with even a smattering of snow. Many people will be put off cycling in these cold and icy conditions, but with a bit of preparation and care it is fine to keep riding. The reward is getting to your destination on time and enjoying some exercise in the process which helps keep your body warm if not your hands and feet.
