Freezing fog at low level but glorious higher up!

A brilliant morning's riding at Glentress. A temperature of -3 Celsius and freezing fog at the start this morning but once higher up and a little later on the sun appeared and the view of the Tweed valley was tremendous, with the fog snaking down the path of the river. In fact it's the first time we've seen the sun at Glentress for over a month (and it didn't rain either)! The only downside was the fact that various parts of the bikes kept freezing up, e.g. front and rear derailleurs and the the jockey wheels on Baz's drive train for some reason! 26 and a half miles ridden and not a crash, we're surely taking it too easy these days!

Never took the camera out on the bike, it was too cold early on and I had problems with it once before, (probably not an expensive enough camera)..... thats a hint by the way if you want better pictures!!!
