    Winter?

    Not here.
    Had the summer's first day at the beach on the weekend.

    Yup. In with the unicorns and rainbows so Tone's will never see it.
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    There is winter and then there is winter-winter. I think this latter category describes the cities on this list.

    America's 25 Coldest Cities - The Daily Beast

    Of course, we made this list at number 11

    Heyall, where you're at is just like living in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, or Alberta. Too cold for me, that's for sure. As for moi, winter here, bring it on. As long as it's cold enough our muddy trails freeze into nice hardpack! And once we do get snow, I ride anyways. Fall and spring suck if it's wet.

    Harder is better until your tire is thrown on a frozen rut or you test your brakes on a sheet of ice. Falling in the cold hurts so much more than fall in the warmth.

    I'll bet both dru & cyclelicious have a set of studded tires.

    I have all 4 seasons all year round here. It's all about the elevation.

    Hey guys they do make snowmobile's you know. As a kid in upstate N.Y. we rode snowmobiles. When we got bored with that we put sheet metal screws [as studs] in the knobs of our motorcycle tires. We didn't have the luxury of circus like balloon tires on our bicycles. Fat bikes back then consisted of our Schwinn cruiser bikes playing double duty, a year round bike.

    Studded tires are on my shopping list for this winter.

    Good girl, and I must say you be looking styling in that photo. SS on the other hand well his form needs some work. And It looks like he purposely rode off the end of that perfectly good platform. What the hell's wrong with him.

    I may have some studded rubber things, and I suspect that Cyclelicious does too, since she can be quite cheeky when she wants to be

    Perfect Zero with the double mystery post.
    Question one: Where is this local ski hill?
    Question two: You bought the skis on the net?

    Mammoth mountain. Not really "local" for anyone not living in Mammoth, but close enough for me!
