/ Driving around the Peak
Guess it all depends what you're driving ;)
Ford focus with snow chains.
Looking at the main road through Hope and cars are passing albeit with care.
Not many cars on the road. Schools are closed so loads of people will be pinned down by that.
If you've got chains you'll be able to get around - unless you end up behind a column of traffic without.
Been out on bike along Hope Valley, main roads are passable with care. Very few cars about. Schools closed. Side roads fully snowed and anything with a bit a bit of gradient may be trickier.
If you know how to drive in snow, you'll be fine.
Peak roads this morning. Roads are getting much better.
That must have been hard work.
Actually is was great and got a fair lick on (just rode to work and back to pick up some files).
Big volume tyres with low pressure helps.
Did get some funny looks though (especially later when I whizzed down the village sledging slope a few times)
