From the always awesome Greg Hum

 

Tonight’s Boston Bike Party involves a short ride followed by Harpoon Beer donations and free pizza from All Star Pizza at Hub Bicycle for the after-party.
Y’all are welcome to show up to the after-party if you don’t think you’ll ride, but you’d better be rocking some sweet 80s attire.

Jen looking toasty warm on her -25 wind chill commute this morning!

And Gloria looking classy with her city bike! (impressive cargo capacity!)

 

I still have several books left!  Send in your winter riding pictures!

 

It was cold (like eye lashes frozen cold) this morning, but I rode, and so did a lot of other folks!  Like they say, no such thing as bad weather, only poor clothing choices.  If you are still riding what is your setup?
