    My mountain bikes are getting parked all winter, I'll ride my commuting bike around a bit and that's about it. Winter is hockey season for me, unless we have another non-winter like last year where it didn't snow and the ice rinks wouldn't stay frozen. If that happens again I'll go for quick rips on my local trails.

    Getting the Pugsley ready for the winter now. I hope to get out once a week on it. I play hockey anywhere from 3-5 times a week so that's all I can really hope to get out riding.

    Thanks Osokolo! Training with power is new for me and will provide plenty of motivation, even though motivation has never been a problem for me (indoors or outdoors). My problem is my genes and unfortunately I cannot buy my way out of that.

    I will continue to ride through the winter.
    I also play hockey at least once per week.
    I will also be riding the trainer Sufferlandrian video style...if Unglued thinks he should lose another 10 I'd better get on it myself!!

    Ravenshoe and Hilton Falls for me too for trail rides. I have a Kona Stuff that I sacrifice to the salt gods and that is my road ride for the winter. I kind of use it as an urban assault vehicle on snowbanks and anything else that looks fun on the road, schools and Go Station parking lot. They pile up huge snow banks that are a bit of fun. I also put together a fully rigid ride using an old Brodie Holeshot frame for Joyride. With the seats folded down, I can easily put it in the back of my SUV and it won't get all mucked up on the drive to Markham.

    Ditto
    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    I just want to ride more this winter.
    I have a slightly customized set of long stud fat bike tires, and am looking to try them in a low snow area, like Hilton Falls, or Kelso. Somewhere icy.

    Studded tires at Hilton is not such a good idea, people get quite upset about the extra scaring the roots and rocks get from them. And as Oggie said you don't really need them there any how.
    it tied the room together man!

    Probably ride my Norco CCX1 into the ground both outside and on the turbo trainer.
    Not a lot of trail riding, mostly along the lakeshore path Guildwood to Oshawa style.
    Lots of Sufferfest videos. Nothing crazy in the bush just yet, shoulder isn't 100% after yardsale accident at the summer 8. Once I start feeling better strength wise, Joyride.

    Planned loss for 40lbs starting Oct, ending in Paris to Ancaster.. may put me out of Clyde but that's alright by me.

    Well okay I used them once

    Gonna try and hop on the trainer this winter. Last winter's cycling strike/video game binge had me rolling into the spring all pudgy and soft.

    I also got into boxing. Gonna get myself that upper body that years of soccer/cycling have neglected.

    New bike? nah, im into car tuning now that i have an adults job.

    Take it from me, it's awesome! And exhausting... but there will be time to sleep when she leaves for university.
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    For me, 2 hockey skates per week. I'll also ride through the winter 2 times per week, and probably try out cross country skiing at some point. Thinking of picking up a set of studded tires for the winter rides too...
