Codename: Urbane ride.
We met at the Sun Inn car park (Google map of start location) for 7:15pm start. After fixing a puncture and fitting the rear light to my bike we finally started.
We followed the Urban Round route. This is a 16 mile (25km) off road route around Swindon mainly on tarmac paths.
Almost all of the route was compacted snow or ice. We rode all of it with only two spills, one on proper black ice. We finished off with a beer in the Sun Inn.
