Well, Easter fell extremely early this year, and it had been a while since it snowed on Easter as well. Tonight there had been some snow and today would also see several snow flurries invading the country. The higher regions received a nice white carpet but chez nous it didn"t last long, and turned into mud. I decided for a ride in the forest, knowing that it would be tough due to the mud. But once I get going, I don't really mind that much. The temperature was an average 2 degrees C so I chose for some climbing to keep me warm. During the ride there were several snow flurries which made visibility hard and turned the tracks into a slippery mess. This was great for my equilibrium and I managed to keep the rubber side down during the entire ride, even though I was performing some weird calisthenics from time to time, just to keep my bike moving. I didn't have the strength to wash it afterwards, but I'm sure it will survive a night plastered in mud.
