    Winter riding at night is so boss. Sometimes we turn off our lights and ride by moonlight.

    Just started riding seriously for the first time in a lot of years. Hooked up with an old buddy who is determined to keep me riding through the New England winter. I bought my first pair of cycling pants and winter gloves and now I'm looking for a set of 29" studded tires. Went for a night ride last week, and although there was no snow, it was 29 degrees when we finished up our 2.5 hour ride. I was dressed right and stayed pretty warm throughout. I'm really looking forward to biking all year round!

    I had a fun riding season this summer in the SW and in the NW. But I am happy it's raining and I can go back to the trail system I love in the winter up here. Finally made it up last week and was so happy it was wet.

    Funny how the seasons are reversed down here. I'll be cramming in as much riding as I possibly can between now and March/early April while it's still tolerable to be outside, much less outside and exerting oneself.

    Not my video, but I could probably ride this trail with my eyes closed. One of my favorites.

    Winter on Vancouver Island. Yes, that's snow. Riding with the Qualicum Beach Middle School bike club.

    The girl on the right is Chelsea. She's my inspiration for building over 20km of trails there. She has FASD, comes from a very dysfunctional family and has just pushed her bike through a stream and up about 1.5km of logging road. Look at that smile!

    It looked promising this morning but it all melted before I could get out.
    I think I'm too close to the lake.
    Maybe tomorrow.

    yea...it was 73 in west AR today. I think it's been down around freezing a couple of nights. The leaves have changed and fallen but weeds and some grasses are still growing. It'll be mid January before we have a chance of snow.

    We did an urban ride last evening. It was blustery! The wind was between 40 and 52 km/hr and drifting snow.I could really feel the bike pushing sideways.

    We had to be careful because the roads were slippery (we didnt have the studded tires on yet,) lights mounted and I wore my windstopper jacket and pants

    We were out for 1,5 hours but it felt like 3 hours! Got to see some interesting home decked out with lights. The wind was so strong that some of the blowup decorations got knocked over,

    25 degrees start, 23 end. Little bit windy. I was on a rail to trail with the mountain bike using Bontrager Jones XC mud tires, they worked well. I really want a fat bike, but can't afford it right now, so it makes due.
    I plan to ride today and it's only going to hit 22 degrees, but properly dressed, it's okay. Better than sitting on the trainer.

    here's some good info on studded tires.

    Studded Bicycle Tires

    i use nokian freedies revenz. i find more studs the better when you ride off camber, climb and descend.

    What's this "snow" you Ontarians are talking about?!?!?!

    *looks out window*

    It might as well be winter in the Caribbean here!



    (that's NOT being negative ... I happen to LOVE the Caribbean very much, thank you )



    At any rate, GREAT pics and vids from everyone thus far. Hope to see plenty more.

    Gravel?

    I just started into some winter "gravel" rides on my BD monster cross with Kenda Happy Mediums. They did really well on the hard packed snow, looking forward to my ride tomorrow.

    We did a Christmas Eve ride on our local trails. We built a fire to warm up



    On the way home we checked out the neighbourhood decorations and found a winner!

    I LOVE winter riding. Here in VT, we have been getting a terrible amount of snow for skiing, great amount for mountain biking! My 2010 Cannondale F9 is technically my "winter bike", as I will buy a 2013 Cobia soon. The new tires that I put on the F9 for mud riding work great for slippery snow riding. The only problem with this bike for snow riding is that it has........................Rim Brakes!!! I hope to upgrade the bike soon, and I will post pictures of it.

    It's almost embarrassing to mention how nice our weather is here in So Cal after seeing the Winter pics from other locations. Here's a few pics from a workout loop ride today.
