Slip sliding away

This mornings cycle commute was slippery than a slippy thing. At 6.45am this morning everything was frosty when I went out for the milk. When I left for work at 7.15am it had started to rain. The main roads were fine if a little slippy in places, but the side roads were like a a skating rink. I managed to avoid falling off somehow, but once I reached the genal that cuts through to work I couldn’t stand up without walking on the grass. However it was so slippy out the other side I coiuldn’t get back on the bike. When I finally got to the bike shed the walk down the site to my office would have been more suitable for Torvill and Dean. A normal 2 minute walk took 15 minutes. They say it’s going to walm up. Roll on please anything is better than this.

About robin1953

Hi I am a 57 year old man living in York, with my wife Jill. We have three grown up childred, and two grand children, Tim and Noah. I've been cycling all my life, but I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years back, so the cycling became more important. I did well for a few years, but slowly the weight went up. Update; how time flys, I'm now 60 still battling the weight but still riding.
