I went out on my bike in the last lot of snow we had :D. Brakes have absolutely no effect when you can't see them for the snow surrounding them, and pedalling anything more than lightly is a topple waiting to happen. It was good when I got to a place from which all my routes home involved going downhill. Still, I didn't fall off which was lucky!

Meh, it was fun in my old car but the Mk7 Fiesta is kinda poor in the snow really, traction control kicks in far too much and just doesn't get you anywhere, struggled even on a flat road with the darn thing with absolutely no acceleration, just using the clutch >_>

To all those complaining about the Fiesta in the snow - it's your tyres not the car ;)

I have winter tyres fitted that are M+S marked (mud + snow) and have absolutely no issues with control :) We've had around 4 inches of snow in this region.

I've been looking at getting m+s tyres but the snow came before I made my mind up but the contisports did ok in the 8" we had

Agreed it's the tyres, they're absolute crap... I've put on some snow tyres now that my Uncle had on his rally-spec play toy, which makes life a lot better. What doesn't make life better is the fact I went prating around and have sort of bent my bumper. Oops.
