DO ITSo, is snowy, for the first time in southern england for EVER weve had about 1ft of snow overnight, with another ft on its way. so what do we do this morning? Grab my mates snowboard, grab my Bike and head to the biggest, steepest part of the hill we could find!

So my boarding mate is like, your mad for getting on the bike, youll be crashing all over the place! Pah! screw that, so we get to the top of the hill. immediately we Like kids in a candy shop, we are checking out lines all over the place, i jump on, pedal towards the ridgeline and away we went. funnily enough, the hill is actually covered in huge thick lumps of grass, like moguls, so i was really, really apprecitive of Fox. with my wheels submerged up to the rotors, flat out down the hill, practically blind from the snow flying up, it was SO good. went over the other side, slightly shallower but smoother ground beneath tyhe snow, and start drifting it up across the hillside, absolutely awesome day.

If it snows, dont go anmd play with snowballs, get your bike, find the biggest hill possible, rough as you like, and go balls out, youll go down stuff faster every time, its great fun.

Pics to follow!
