1st bivi of 2015 – Val Ferret, Italy.
Great ride up, nowhere in the trees less than waist deep in snow (and no shovel) so retreated to a little abandoned village and took shelter under an overhanging roof.
Spoke to a fella who is the only person still living in the village and he said that the night before was -14°c and windy as hell (he offered to give me food in his cabin).
Later he arrived (having xc ski’d 1km from his place in the dark) with a bottle of local beer which he thought I might like – what a thoroughly nice bloke!
I don’t think it got down to -14°c but it was mighty cold all the same and so I got up nice and early and made it home in time for breakfast.
Bring on March…..
