Looks like there's a whole series of them too

Cycling In The Snow

Today's valuable lesson, the London roads you normally love to cycle on (back streets, quiet) in the snow are the very ones that are uncleared and full of iced up speed-bumps, whereas the one you normally avoid (main roads, full-of-traffic) are pretty empty and are cleared of snow.
