If it were snowing badly and there was snow on the road, I'd park and lock the bike in as safe a place as possible and catch a bus.

Worst case: you have to leave the bike somewhere and get a B&B, and retrieve it the next day.

Otherwise, in icy condx, I'd try to stay to main roads (with more traffic), and go very slow, and stay extremely cautious. Avoid motorways and any road that requires a higher speed.

I hate the bus!

"what do you do in the snow?"

Wait 3 mins, bc that cloud (w/the snow) will be gone. Happy days again in CityWest.
