Hi, Ive been reading some of the threads in the winter cycling forum, and got inspired to take out my winter bike. so I was cruising across a lake in town. It was very windy today so there was no snow on it. there was also no snow on it because it all melted in the last 2 days (shouldve been a sign). that being said, i get to the sunny side of the lake and the ice starts cracking. go figure. so i shift into a higher gear and start booking it towards the shore. almost all the ice along the shore is gone. I headed for the nearest spot where there was ice touching the shore. when i got there, I tried to wheelie so that i could get onto the shore, the rise was about a foot. after my front wheel is up, all the ice around me cracks. luckily, im only up to my knees in water. anyway, on my ride home I was wondering if anything similar has happened to any of you.
