Took myself round by Ballycastle in the miserable weather to Ballypatrick forest but the drive was closed

and on out to Larne, up and over Shane's Hill - beautiful scenery but too cold and windy to stop for a photo!

Headed on towards Slemish and stopped for soup

I've never driven/ridden it before and I didn't want to risk it in the snow in case I got stuck and was found in the summer thawing out in a ditch...

I've had a few rides on days like that, and getting home was the best part.
