The only photo of any consequence this week, taken last night before the icy descent to the Howe.
The beginning of the week saw the lowest temperatures of the winter so far and by the middle of the week it was definitely ice spikers front and rear for safe riding. Four of us out on Wednesday night, two of us with spikers and two without, and the difference was like chalk and cheese. However by Saturday night when Baz and me went out a lot of the ice had gone though the spikers were still needed for some of the sections. By tomorrow, Monday, I reckon it'll be back to the usual tyres though winter is forecast to return by the end of the week.
