I've found the throttle to be a big help, sometimes as soon as I start pedaling the back wheel starts to slide sideways. Not too great on the slush though as I have found myself going too fast and aquaplaning, I need the extreme Nokian tyres for that!Interestingly, I thought to myself that without a throttle I'd never have been able to manage it!
No I think it's a genuine story. Nice to see she survived because it could have been very sad tale.I wonder if they had been reading yehuda moon comic (which had a very similar storyline..)
Finally got fed up with the useless trains this morning and thought about something like marathon winter tyres - not so much for the snow but the ice afterwards. However as you can imagine, everwhere is sold out and no idea when there will be any more stocks coming in.While I have studded tyres on my bicycles, my car has no studs. This is because a bit of sliding in a car is no problem. It won't lose it's balance because it has four wheels. On a bike you really need this extra grip.
Studded tyres are most useful when there is frost/ice.
I've living in the UK, and would highly recommend studded tyres for e-bikers who cycle all year round.
One fall and the damage to you and your bike could cost you more than the cost of the tyres.
I didn't think the story wasn't genuine, what I meant is that literally day before there was a very similar storyline on this US comic (like a surreal sitcom about a bike shop)

I was schooled in the catholic system late 50's/60's and I remember all to well examples like yours, and yes sports where a nightmare!Thank God those days have passed. My teenagers experiences are all so thankfully different.I well remember freezing my nuts off, standing in goal and 6 inches of snow in a strong northerly wind on the school playing field for 90 minutes. Not even a pair of gloves. No mercy shown. Ahhh the good old days.
PS. And England won the world cup that year.
