Watch Out For The Ice! – 5th December

Holland Road skating rink

Holland Road skating rink

I stepped out of the house with every intention of doing one of my usual lanes loops, but the ice on the road outside called for a quick change of plan. Stick to main roads! So a simple out and back ride heading up the Tamworth Road.

In Fillongley I turned right towards Nuneaton, then right again along Wood End Lane to get back onto the Tamworth Road…. big mistake! This road hadn’t been gritted, and everywhere that was still in the shade was like a skating rink! Somehow I managed to get to the end of it without ending up on my arse! Then back home to a nice warm house.
