Snow fun?

Jem in the snow
Back in February we had the single biggest snowfall I can remember in this part of the world, causing widespread chaos but importantly, plenty of opportunity for bike related fun. Remarkably, it looks as though we may be in for some more

Two snowfalls in a year? In Surrey? What is the world coming to I wonder. At any rate we can look forward to a few days of frozen mud and perhaps a dusting or so of snow even if the conditions feel mightily chilly. I’ll be out tonight with plenty of warm clothing, winter tyres on my singlespeed and the intention of not getting too technical. All I lack is a hip-flask of something warm to keep my spirits up.

The question is, do you have everything ready to get out there when and if the conditions are favourable?

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    In a word – No. Three frames (two now sold), a few boxes of bits and one bike that is unrideable due to a seized freehub.

    Looks like i’ll be staying in the warm tonight. Have a great ride
