    How are you coping with winter so far??

    This is it... the dead zone. It's cold, it's dark, not enough snow (in CA) and everyone is getting sick.

    How are you dealing with our fate? Obviously, more mtbr time as our traffic has not dropped off at all. Is your trainer out yet? Cycling videos and mags? Bike shopping?

    I get back and hamstring spasms and tightness when I'm off the bike for more than a week. It's starting I have to pedal somehow. Everyone in the household is sick too and I have to take care of them and they're trying to spread the germs to me!

    Anyway, bay area weather is unusually cold these days and us wimps are not used to it. I'm trying but weekday rides are just tough.

    The weekday nights are sooooo long and it's just cold and dark outside so for me I:

    - waxed my car. changed oil, rotated tires
    - waxed my bikes
    -cleaned the garage
    -cleaned my office
    - played forza and gran turismo

    The horror!!!

    We don't have winter here in Florida. When it drops below 60 we start complaining.

    That's just wrong Sean!

    That was mean and just plain wrong. You're making us Floridians look bad.

    I'm riding Santos this weekend and camping out. The high temps are supposed to be in the 70s and low around 50. Perfect!

    I'd be riding, but

    I am waiting on a replacement front triangle. I will ride throughout the winter so long as the weather isn't too cold. Other tha that, I'm just sitting waiting for spring to arrive, as i'm not a huge cold weather fan.

    well here it's the usual 75 at day and maybe 65 at night.

    sending off job apps for gov't jobs like crazy--u know--gotta keep that semisoft lifestyle I learned w/ uncle sam--ha ha

    weekend road ride, occasional mtb ride. rides on the trainer at the gym and home. some treadmill.
    actually the riding will step up when I get back to TX.

    There is a chance the Army flys me to Valencia, CA instead of Dallas (esp if I want the ability to keep some/most of my stuff in long term storage)--so I may get a chance to ride Tucson and Cloudcroft on the way to TX to job hunt. I need to say how those riding locales are around mid February.

    Me?!? I'm not the one talking about riding Santos with temps in the 70's.

    Mondays - spin class

    Wednesdays - group nite ride...changing over to nite xc-ski with a little more snow

    Weekends - Ride and freeze ......changing to xc ski (see above)

    In Between - Run, Swim, and spin the hamster wheel at the local habitrail (gym).

    I think my lack of sunshine madness is mostly under control........I've gone from wanting to kill myself, back to wanting to kill others, so I'm pretty sure that's good. Only 95 days till the lamb of spring arrives.

    Here in Puerto Rico the temperature only drops a bit but instead of snow we're getting a lot of rain.

    In terms of riding I'm only squeezing some road miles during the week after work and Saturday and Sunday mornings a quick road ride with my kid before heading to the LBS that I'm part timing during the holidays.

    Trail riding is out of the picture until the holidays are over, here they last until mid January.

    Taken last Sunday


    Happy Holidays to everyone!

    You've seen the Single Digits F post. I just keep riding (6:30 am weekdays... later in the day on Friday and Saturday). I either dress up warm or head south. Even the dark hasn't been too funky yet this year. Gotta ride.

    Slooooooooooooooooowing down....

    I'm moving from riding 4-5 times per week to once per week. Its killing me. I fixed up my lights, so I'm ready for night rides, but kids/kid illness has kept me from getting out. Tomorrow we're getting 5-10" of snow. That sucks. 5-10" is too much to ride in, not enough to ski on. Hopefully by the weekend the snow machines will have smashed the snow down, so I can at least get a ride in. Ugh.

    I really don't mind the cold for the most part - however, I'd really like to see more or less snow. Nothing better than a winter ride on frozen ground - maximum traction.

    Some of us are just fortunate enough to live in such places. I have skipped 27 winters in a row living here in southern Arizona.

    We ride 12 months out of the year, but many of you who would be envious now would not want to put up with our summer time temps of 113F and 8% humidity.

    Coping just fine, thank you!

    I ran outside last night near the gym along the river. According to Weather.com the windchill was around 10-11 degrees. Ack! I handled it fine except for my face. Next time I'm bringing the balaclava. The other night I forgot my cold weather gear and had to do cardio work inside the damn gym. THANK GOD for friggin' XM Radio...more specifically the ability to store 5 hours of programming on MyFi...otherwise I'd go nuts on the elliptical or recumbent bike.

    I do still manage to lift a couple of nights a week. And on the weekends I either go snowshoeing or XC skiing.

    I haven't had my SS out since Thanksgiving though.


    Once it warms back into the 20s/30s at night, then I'll be riding again.

    Aw crap...I may have to go to Spinning tomorrow instead of running.

    Good Post!

    Other than six mountain bike rides (three of which were in Austin, TX) in the past two months, and playing in a flag football league, I've been taking it easy. My road bikes have seen no action since September. This week, I started jogging again during my lunch hour 3x per week. (heading out as soon as I send off the post) I'll get back into road riding on my lunch hour or on weekends very soon. I'm bound not to let the anual winter weight gain happen this year. Now that I'm racing on the Velodrome, it's too much work to drop the weight gained. The road bike will most likely come out of it's fall hybernation next week

    So far so good

    This is the best time of year for riding in Las Vegas. The nights and the mornings are a bit chilly, just touching freezing. The weekends have been great though. To bad i work 9-5 or i'd be out in the afternoon riding.

    Here in Upstate NY, we are still managing to get in a few rides. A few of us made it out last night, rode for 2+ hours in 15 degree temps with about 3" of snow on the trails, using helmet/handlebar lights. Good stuff! Slim Jims & hot cocoa post-ride. Unfortunately we're supposed to get 5" of snow tonight, so it looks like that may be it for riding this season. Till the white stuff thaws....XC skiing and snowshoes, bike cleaning, repairs, and of course mandatory bike upgrades. Will hit the trainer some too, though I find riding inside particularly boring. We'll manage a few deep winter rides I'm sure, when the conditions allow...

    It hasn't reached the freezing mark in what, 10 days? Single digits or teens and windy, virtually zero miles on my bike in the past two weeks, save for half a day at the jumps last weekend. They say to expect a warming trend ... we could see 30 degrees! But with that comes 6 inches of snow so I'll save my celebration for another time.

    I would SO gladly suffer through Bay Area Winters ... 36 years of this is more than enough.

    Have a great day everyone!

    I went riding last weekend and the temp was 30. There was also 2 and a half feet of water through the trail because i just rained. By the time I got home, I couldn't walk because of my frozen(literally frozen )feet. All in all, I would say winter is kicking my ass.

    Here in St. Louis...

    we just say our first accumulated snow today - a whole 3-4 inches. Hasn't been above 25F in a good week or two. I hit the trail before coming into work today for a good 1:45 hrs of huffing and puffing through falling snow. the singlespeed and my fixed gear are my only hopes when i have to use the 3-fingered gloves! it's great training anyway. glad to report that i still ride to work as much as i do during the warm months. not sure how long that will last once i get a job, though...

    Anyway, if I can't get on the bike, i just go out running. Don't have to be out for nearly as long to get just as good of a workout, and i don't need to get tons of gear ready. wish i had a heated garage where i could wash and wax my car.

    stay warm, guys/gals.

    Not good

    I've been off the bike for 3 weeks, so I've been reading the Da Vinci code and some Ludlum book. I also keep track of how much weight I'm gaining too. Since I can't ride, I sent my fork to Push and bought a wheelset that I saw on Craigslist.

    Bottom line:
    - read 2 books
    - gained a few pounds
    - spent $600 on upgradeitis

    I don't think I'm doing all that well.

    Winter works for me

    Went skiing last Sat. & Sunday in Vermont.

    Went skiing the weekend before in Pennsylvania (granted we had to hike since the lifts were not running but we're bikers so what's a little climb)

    Will be skiing this weekend.

    Went to my LBS today and got my first look at the new road bike I bought my wife for Christmas.

    By time winter gets old, I'll be on a two week cruise to the Carribean. Life is, indeed, good these days. Might be able to do a little riding in different ports too.

    Than, oh my, its Spring and I ride again and again and again......

    it's f-ing cold here

    Winter finally got here, and for some reason I've been traveeling like hell for work. I have resorted to drinking beer and surfing the web. This weekend, however, I will NORDIC SKI.

    You want to talk about cold? My fire dept. pager went off this morning at 1:00, some diabetic dude's blood sugar crashed and we had to straighten him out. The chief's car's thermometer said it was -16 F. It was friggin' cold. Too much snow on the ground to ride, did sit-ups and pushups today, then walked around my 'hood for an hour. My bike is starting to hate me because I'm ignoring it.

    When it snows - we ride
    When it's 0 degrees - we ride

    When the weather isn't 70 and sunny 7-8 months out of the year you either become hardy or you get slow and fat, end of story.

    retiring..

    from Army after 20 years of service. To stay in HI I'd need a job at 70K. In TX I will make do at 40K. Plus I loved my 4 or 5 years at Ft Hood---the mountain biking scene is really WELL organized in TX both at a state racing and at a grass roots and almost spur of the moment levels. AZ or CO will be acceptable as well. Moving out 13 February Monday--just made flight itenerary at post travel office moments ago. I can't believe hardly the Army career is about at a end. Yay!

    something like that with snow a possiblity 12 months of the year in calgary alberta....you ride
    i'm not quite as hardy as some since my asthma keeps me from doing much anything outside below -10C rode today and it was -8 w/windchill this morning and 1 when i came home and this is a heat wave after 1.5-2weeks of -20 to -30 weather...not bad i figure at least the new tires are making themselves useful

    Same here, we go from Fall to Spring and then Summer (but summer here really sucks). I noticed on bikejournal that I'm moving up the stats page rather quickly lately. I think I'm still averaging 60-80miles a week. Vegas rocks from October to May.

    Doesn't get horribly cold here in SC, so its the dark and lack of gumption that are the limiting factors. Between the trainer, good lights, and Sundays I do pretty well.

    I suppose I could also count my commute, but its all of 3 miles each way.
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.

    i ride all year too and i live in freaking indiana. i'm 16 and this is my first winter driving and i drive a mitsubishi truck. well i was at my GF's house and it started snowing at about 3:00pm and we got eh, 7''ish. man driving in the snow is fun in a rwd car! i just got home and it was sweet!

    well sorry that was worthless, but i enjoy driving in the winter...i just hate the women drives who panic all the time while driving. no offense to the women on her cause not all are that way.

    well i'll be riding soon hopefully once the trials get really really frozen i'll be back out riding. i've been doing urban assult riding every night that it hasn't been rainy and its usually in the teens so i'll live through the winter!

    Not bad

    In SoCal we've had some great days. With cooler weather my mileage has gone up to ~125 miles/week. But I do dread the rain (and mud).

    condensing my geared roadie and my fixie into one bike. ordering a new on-one il pompino frame to do some tinkering with my crosser/commuter. installed and cut/bled the lines on a new set of juicy-5 hydro brakes for my hardtail.

    busting out the snowshoes this saturday morning.

    working up a new pair of backcountry skis as well.

    x-mas shopping cr@p this friday. should take me all of a whopping couple hours.

    stage production of "a christmas carole" next weekend.

    watching lots of movies i've not seen; rentals.

    oh yeah, and that work thing happens once in a while.

    Here in Philadelphia it is frigid and the bit of snow we have won't melt. Now we're getting more tomorrow. This was my first season as a full-on, daily rider, and my legs are punishing me now that I've been off the bike for a week. I thought something was wrong with me until I read your post, Francois, and learned this was just part of getting out of shape. My friends and I are hitting Costa Rica in Feb. for some midwinter fun. Renting Litespeed Niotas and climbing volcanoes. It's the only bright spot in the gloom.
