I went out for a ride today with a mate [ I do have 1:D]
We both came off after slipping on some black ice.
We were riding in a country lane around 11am in Essex that was tree lined so the ice had not thawed.

Be careful out there.

Maybe you need a winter bike!

I'm our in Spain and climbed my balls off today. 2 hrs straight up. It blew my mind. The descent was like nothing I have felt before. Unreal

What do you mean by winter bike? Of course there are bikes better suited to winter riding, but black ice can no doubt get the better of anyone.
Post was meant as tongue in cheek. See OP's thread in Bikes & Gear for background to my reply (Who needs a winter bike).

Went out for a ride again today, looked out of the window and the roads were frozen :eek: so waited till it looked a bit better, Rode a bit cautious. It looked slippery and I did not want to fall off again and make the sore bits worse , Funny because the crash happened early on in the ride yesterday and we rode another 40 miles quite happily, maybe it takes pain to make me ride a bit more cautiously. bike ok [ always bike 1st:D] and I'm still in 1 piece :cool:
