Yes when I was approaching the Supermarket on Kilmore Rd I slipped a bit twice,not much just the back Wheels moved slightly to the side about 50 metres from the Supermarket. There was a lot of Cars trying to move along as well moving very slowly. I was stopped at the Lights and the Cars waited until I moved first as when they eventually trid to move they couldnt get Purchase in the Snow for a few seconds.So they were being extra careful giving everyone plenty of Room. After I Skidded I got off the Bike and onto the Path and Walked into the Supermarket to the Bike Rack. I was able to get Home without any more Slips, I just took it slowly and tried to keep away from the Side Gutter as much as possible to avoid the Heavy stuff. Even though it was fresh Snow there was possibly Old Ice underneath from the Previous Day. I did not have a big Load of Stuff on the Bike.
