I had an absolute lovely time riding in today. Roads were empty and not too bad, no traffic, and it wasn’t as cold as I thought it was going to be. We will see how going home is.
EDIT: Ride home was also pretty good. I slipped and slid all over the Longfellow, but other than that wasn’t too bad. Been hibernating every since. I am becoming more and more convinced that a bicycle will do just fine in most weather conditions. But then again you don’t need to ride in the snow if you don’t want to.
For those of you that asked, I ride a fixed gear aluminum bicycle, with 25mm slick gator-skin hard shells on them year round rain/snow/shine. I am sure snow tires, or something else would be better, but this is what I am used to so this is what I go with.
Anyone else ride? Share you stories. Open thread below.
