Winter - Ride or Hibernate?
Looking out the window I see fields that are sparkling white with a deep frost. The road is coated in a cocktail of corrosive salts, grits and a sprayed on sticky substance to keep the cocktail on the road surface.
Do I take the S3 for exercise, before it seizes up through inactivity or do I admit defeat, run up the white flag and take the car?
Somehow riding around, trying to avoid any unsalted areas of tarmac, whilst the rider and bike get covered in grot is thoroughly unappealing. The thought of sliding my pristine white S3 along the cold tarmac is affecting my thinking. Maybe I'll just have another cuppa and another think ...... Maybe I should just emigrate from this barren wilderness and seek sunnier climes?
