Default Snow

No riding today then. It’s been properly snowing here for the last couple of hours and there’s a couple of inches on the ground already.

Oh heck. Lady Poppy is with her dad this weekend in Shrewsbury. Lets hope the snow does not move too far east or she'll have a rubbish journey home tomorrow, which will be terrible. If she's delayed I'll have to cook for myself again and there is only so much cheese on toast I can put up with...

Also, I am getting all weather tyres for her car but they're going on in two weeks time so the snow has come too early dammit!!!

My wife has gone to run in the Mad Jack’s event at Attingham near Shrewsbury and apparently it’s raining there.

Wait 'til it's above the telegraph poles!
" 1963 Dragon Rally

“None had conquered the Horseshoe Pass - some adventurous types had set out to try, but were stopped by drifts and the R.A~C 's alternative route through Corwen and Cerrigy druidion was relatively trouble free.”

Have been to Horseshoe Pass a few times in the last couple of years on SV650 rideouts, but it's not as I remember it!

Where's all the snow?

Riding Maicoletta scooters a pal and I went up the pass as it seemed the most direct route. We saw car roofs above the snow and then just radio aerials.

Eventually the only tracks were the trials sidecar in John Ebbrell's article so we followed them. When we reached the point where he turned round (he had more sense than us) we did another 20 yards and then had to turn back ourselves because the snow was above the telegraph poles and we would have no idea where we were.

When we got to the crossroads at the northern end after a long detour we realised we couldn't have got down anyway - the Horseshoe road was a solid wall of snow about 12 feet high!

Happy days, although the night wasn't - my 'patch' had a frozen molehill in the middle of it. Never been so cold and uncomfortable - until the Elephant Rally where I walked round the Nurburgring to keep warm.
