Frozen issues

Rode to work on Friday morning, and suffered frozen problems. Firstly my seat was covered in ice, I didn't know what to do, though I discovered that because the seat is 'bendy' and flexible bashing it on the top Karate style cracked the ice neatly allowing it to be brushed off. Slow start but result ;o) Next the ride to work...

Aside from squeakier brakes than normal, and a beautiful blanket of frost over the scenery along the way, my gloves weren't up to the job. This is odd, seeing as they are skiing gloves and should be suited to keeping my figures out of harms way.... got to work with numb digits!!!

Wondering whether to revise my ten tips for commuting on a bike to include a cold weather contingency section ;o)
