Day trip with a cycle in & out. Made the rookie mistake of figuring this was 'just' a pair of Corbetts (plus a Simm) and even with recent light snowfall we'd be nipping up and down, so would be fine wearing the lightweight boots :roll: Only it was freezing cold and on the way out, almost back at the bikes, I stood in the bog over the top of the boot :shock: :crazy: Still, another good day out :D
