Hello Xgi, there are many, many members in Michigan, so you may have to be a little more specific about your area :) . You mean you don't ride in the snow? There's a Winter Cycling forum here...:D .
What are you riding by the way?
Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions :) !
Hello east hill Acutally I'm right near oscoda right on the shore on lake huron. My ride today was just incredible. Hardly any bikers here. I just about own the road in the AM. ride us-23/m-72 a lot. if you see a guy in a bright yellow shirt/blue bike good chances it's me:D
Love to ride as far as I can but me and the cold just don't play well with each other:mad:. Besides another one of my passions comes out of me that time of year and I just gotta do it:lol:
Anyway I was riding a mongoode switchback sx but that has become a sour subject with me and I might need some help later on. Now I saddled up a new pony and ride a cannondale adventure 600. this bike is really sweet and seems to fit me well
thank you for the welcome east hill:) BTW what a nice site plenty of useful info here:)

It's just about 6.30 am here in Kent, Washington, and yup, there's not too many folks out on the road at the moment. Give them a few hours, and they'll be out there, but for the moment, peace reigns!
I know, not everyone enjoys riding in the snow and cold, and perhaps we just don't get enough of it here, but I have enjoyed the days when I got out there with the mountain bike and rolled down the local bike path. I have not yet fully bike commuted in the ice/snow, so it will be interesting for me to find out what it's like.
What a nice day here. Got a 51 mile ride in today to test out my new bike going to try a trainer in the house this winter for my bike. nothing like riding but will help keep the legs a bit loose
Wow the beautiful state of Washington. I bet you have some wonderful places to ride. Good luck in the snow and ice and wear your woolies:lol:.......x

No ride yet today, but I DID get this put together!
wow that's nice. looks fast:) I can see this biking is going to cost me some dough. I bought a trek 6500 for the trail run yesterday. My cannondale 600 tires just don't cut it on that gravel.
we did over 70 miles yesterday. :)
now I know why they call that bike a hardtail:cry:

Nah, cycling is as cheap or as expensive as you want it to be.
The bike in my photo cost $1500, but it's certainly the most expensive bike I've ever owned. The rest of them cost me well under $2000, and I have 12 bikes total :) .
