I had to push my hybrid with offroad rubber to get to the main road tonight, shocking state out there with ice and slush.

Was about to put the Mythos fronts back on the front and back for this ride... don’t think that’ll be happening now. Mud Mad’s me thinks.

Only bike I have to ride is in hybrid touring tyre mode, so big large centre slick with a few knobbles on the edge. Hoping it'll not be to slippy.

Says more snow due from Friday through to Sunday.....mudguards are a must even though I hate the look of them.

My workmate Marty should be coming down too for this.

He's on here but is shy :lol:

Spoke to Owen (owns off road centre at top of RHB), he said the snow was melting pretty well and the Railway wasn't that bad near him but wasn't certain what it'd be like up the top of Ravenscliffe.
