As above.

It was lovely and calm (and not too cold) around midnight last night. I was tempted to out for a ride! :D

Well an eventful night on Friday, started off on the path up to Meall Tionall bothy with my lights. The path was pretty much frozen solid though as the Landrovers must have packed the snow down on them. Got to a bridge with no guard rails that was totally frozen over with slick ice and though better of sliding into the river!

Camped back near the cairn which was a pretty good spot and ended up doing a loop in Perth instead. So good fun but I'm not sure bikepacking in the snow is for me!

Buckled the back wheel, wrecked the rear derailleur and snapped a brake lever coming off my bike the in the frost last week on the commute to work! :shock: Tried turning left and the back wheel went from underneath me and skidding down the road before clattering into a tree. Maybe riding in the winter is not for me! :roll:

Pugs all back together so away for a "shake out" ride, lovely and frosty this morning, -5 when I left at around 9.00.
@ Scotroutes, hope you don't mind me borrowing your bench :D
