You lucky devil- Some of us are struggling to get the bike out of the shed with losing 4lbs in sweat. Then there is the ride where we have to keep stopping at cafes for refreshment and if you are stopping for coffee- then a bun or a doughnut does not go out of place either. So we then have to finish the ride with a non-stop 20 miles in the excrutiating heat to burn off the calories that we have eaten.
In answer to your question- YES. Unless the snow is above the height of the pedals and will make your feet cold.
Edit---- Was just about to get the bike out of the shed for a cooler evening ride and Big flashes of lighting and plenty of thunder- I just wish it was snow then I could get some decent photos up on the hills
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
