I decided to drive to work for a change this morning. The roads are fairly clear once you get out onto the main roads, and I suspected the car parks would be empty at work today, however my plan was thwarted by the doors on the car being frozen shut. The seals along the bottom of the two front doors have frozen solid, and neither door will open. I did get one rear door open, then couldn’t close it again. Judicious use of a can of de-icer means I think it’s locked properly again now.
At that point I gave up, changed coat and shoes, then dug the geared 69er out and rode in trying to avoid the worst of the ice. There was still a few inches of virgin snow at one end of the site which made the ride worth it.
