    "Polar Vortex"
    You mean winter?
    I think that's been happening for a couple years at least, not exactly news!

    I can see my use of "polar vortex" is pushing some buttons, sorry! I'm just happy more people are pedaling anywhere anytime!

    But cyclists should also be able to relate to weather.com's explanation:
    "If you think of the vortex as a spinning wheel, one of its "spokes" did extend southward into the U.S. as January began."

    hehe!!
    not in a bad way, just funny that they're calling it "polar vortex" as opposed to saying "this winter's a tough one!"
    makes it sound like a weapon of mass destruction, and we know those're only in other countries. :P
