    It's snowing outside right now. I'm trying not to be negative, but it's not easy.
    Your fear of looking stupid is holding you back.

    27 degrees here this morning. Waiting for the frost to burn off, then heading out for a road ride. I like riding in the colder temperatures. its easy to add a layer, but when its 100 degrees you can only take off so much.

    We are at Kingdom Trails and yesterday it was in the low 40s with frequent snow squaws. This morning it is 25 with everything coverd in frost. Supposed to heat up to 48 and sunny today so it will be perfect. Just have to deal with some skim ice in the puddles.

    Last winter in Maine we rode just about every weekend. We had very little snow and the coldest we rode in was 20.

    Most of you will hate me for saying this but....Bring on Winter!! It's been hot as hell for the past 2 months in SoCal and I can't wait to ride in some reasonable temperatures again. Also, winter means desert riding reason. I'm really looking forward to riding the Palm Canyon Epic again after a 7 month hiatus of summer heat.

    Went for a ride the other morning when it was 31*. With the proper clothing it was extremely enjoyable. I used to hate cold weather before learning to properly layer.

    I added a Novara Stratos jacket to my stable for this winter. I took it out on a 37 degree day with sleet falling. It's awesome. I'm looking forward to a nice winter outside.

    Lurked on here for a long time, this thread looks as good as any to make an attempt at a contribution.... The season snuck up on us this past weekend in the CO hills - been snowing for a few weeks, but first time this season getting in it.... Started off in almost a white out but totally clear by the time we got down - planning to enjoy that while it lasts.

    It was an awesome day - plan on riding right through this winter....

    How did you not slide back down that waterfall? It looked like you had studs in your shoes.

    Man you either have sticky ice or sticky shoes! Do you have factory or DIY studs?

    What if we live in a part of the country with no real winter? Are pics of green growing things welcome?

    The ice was a bit soft that day, but I was struggling to keep upright when dismounted. I have Nokian 294's (or something like that). I've put probably 6 or 7 seasons on them and they are still doing fairly well, although I've lost a decent number of side studs due to riding in mixed conditions.

    Every winter season is different so riding conditions are diverse in my neck of the woods

    here's on old one...

    Back in 07 we had some very strange precip in the northeast. Snow, then rain, freezing rain, a bit more snow. What happened was a crusty ice surface on top of a few inches of snow. It was strong enough to generally hold your weight. What amounted were spectacular riding conditions. You could ride anywhere. Didn't need trails, it was like the woods were paved. Here's a POV I shot back then...
