Snow time to get the miles in

Ian Cleverly lunchtime ride

Don't panic, that's my advice. The first big sportive of 2010 is just a couple of weekends away and the Perf's Pedal Race kicks off the road season in a month's time, so I'm not surprised many of you are getting more than a little jittery on account of the big freeze.

It's certainly frustrating not being able to get out as normal, but there's no point taking unnecessary risks. It's far better to go into your first events lacking form than taking a tumble and spending months injured.
