Freezing rain,

It was really fun to ride today. The temperature was about 0C, gentle drizzle and cloudy skies. On the first one hundred meters I had the read wheel slip twice. After that I knew there was black ice everywhere, and rode on the gritting rather than on the grit free 'paths' (made by bike wheels ) on the bikeways. The local newspaper already has reports of people (pedestrians and cyclists, people stepping out of bus) falling. Looks like it'll be a busy weekend for the emergency rooms. :-/
