Anyone else come off on the ice this weekend?

Riding over to a mates saturday morning to get a lift in order to go riding. Didn't seem that cold. Riding along the road not really paying attention. Next thing I know I'm sliding along the road with my courier bag bashing me in the back of the head :lol:

Fortunately no real harm done other than a bit of brusing to leg and ego.

Ha! Good man John.

Was gonna post here. Off twice this morning. Black ice. Nice.

Always surprised me just how fast you go from up to down on ice. At least on mud you have a fighting chance!

When did you start riding to work, or is it hols?
