I am picking up cycling again after my accident. I just went to the park close to my home to ride over flat asphalt to get back in shape.

Finally! The first road ride of the season, and first time with my new C59, so my feelings were really good.. 8)

Lakes still covered with one foot of ice and two feet of snow...

Image

But still some slippery spots on the road as you can see... poor unlucky driver :cry:

Pico de Las Nieves on Gran Canaria the other day.. rode in the clouds from Telde and through San Mateo etc. before escaping them and feeling the temperature ride to 25 degrees at the top! Nice day.

After passing Artenara two days ago, towards Roque Bentayaga.

Some other day at Roque Nublo (really, what day is today, this training camp w. no Internet for days and no TV is messing with me! :-) )

Took the road bike out for the first time this year. -5 C and sun brought some melting water across the road. Froze my FD.

And yes, those are XC skiing shoes, and that's a hockey stick. Hesjedal is a Norwegian surname after all...

Clocks go forward a week today but winter is back with a vengeance, this in the Chilterns north of Reading. My water bottle was beginning to ice up inside after 90 minutes.

not really on the road, but it gives you an idea of the conditions I raced in yesterday...

Uploaded with ImageShack.us
this was after 40km and after 3 or 4 stops to clean the bike on road (wooden stick to get the wheels turning and the derailleurs shifting...)

Roadies and MTBers met on the same spot, followed of course different routes and back together to celebrate the rides!

We (roadies) made it sooner to the finish line and tried the special before the others arrive! Cuttlefish with local herbs...

For your roadies that are riding in the snow and frost, what sort of tires do you use for winter? Which sorts of compounds work best for -5 degrees Celsius (or lower?). Is the Vittoria Open Pave the equivalent of a 'winter tire' for your bike?
