    Default Anyone else push bike to work?

    I've been biking to work for a few months to shift some blubber and then the snow and ice landed. So rather than risk the veccy I ordered some studded snow tyres for the push bike and set of at stupid o'clock this morning.

    Well to say the tyres are good is an understatement! funk me I cycle about 15 miles each way on back roads and country lanes aswell as main roads. The look on drivers faces as I sail by up the hill as they're sat spinning the wheels is priceless. But most of all it's really really nice cycling in the snow sounds daft but it's a right old giggle.

    Anyone else as stupid as me?
    Ken-tec FTW.

    In this day and age of choked roads etc and long hours at, it isn't as daft as it sounds plus it keeps you fit if anything else.

    I cycled for many years cos I could never afford a car. Just wait till the novelty wears off.

    Seriously though, good for you, mate. Watch out for black ice though. If both wheels lose traction the only way is DOWN.
