January 2010 Italy to UK

Hello very soon as you see, i will make that trip.

I would like to ask from those who have experience, about the weather. Will it be possible to drive with my bike in the road, or it will be snow that wont allow me to drive? Is there any possibility that the national road to close, or they do the best to keep it opened?

Thank you much

I don't think you'll have a problem once you are through the Alps. Even there the main roads are kept open so just pick your route. What part of Italy are you coming from?

Worried about snow in the Alps? Take the ferry to Barcelona from Civitaveccia or Genova and enjoy the Spanish weather. Pirinees would be Ok. By that time of the year the ferry between Santander and Plymouth won´t work, but you can ride to Calais, France, without too many problems, only expect the rain. But you are going to UK, so who cares about wet weather?

many passes are closed in winter so check the roads carefully in advance & plan your route across.
