This sounds like the exact tale of my last mid-winter ride. That ice is slippery and hard!

Watching my bike do pirouettes, shedding parts as it slid away from me was enough to convince me to wait until all the ice had melted before taking the bike(s) out.

Yep, I'm a pussy

I'd offer use of my trailer but it looks like it could be May before I can get to it.

I think I am just going to buy a train ticket for mid April. I am leaving for vacation May 12th and being home again on the 20th or 21st.

It's supposed to be in the high 30's this weekend, I would think by the 1st or 2nd weekend in April the icy roads should be done.

No parts shedding, it was a slow drop when the front end decided to slide to the left.

It is back in the basement now waiting until more of the snow / ice goes back to where ever it hides.
