I'm not cycling today

I haven't been out on my bike since Thursday. I'm not prepared to cycle on roads in this condition. The main roads are clear but the side streets are like this, and I use a lot of side streets. I still remember my hospital experiences after my last black ice mishap, and I don't want to go through all that again. Exmouth Road E17, today.

(Below) The icy pavement in Walthamstow High Street this morning, junction with Cleveland Park Avenue. No gritting. And the main routes from the bus station and the train station to the shopping Mall hadn't been gritted either. Waltham Forest council just doesn't care about pedestrians.
