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!
Well keep going until the snow gets too deep....from this weekend.
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.
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!
First descent snow fall for the season here in Southern Ontario
We had a good ride
It looked promising this morning but it all melted before I could get out.
I think I'm too close to the lake.

....high 20's....no snow down but cold, gray, windy....still lots of fun!
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.
85F and sunny both sat and sun in Houston, TX. I got sunburned. Did well in a couple cross races on my Mtn bike.
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,
