I haven't been outdoors on my bike since November and I couldn't take it any more! Plus I bought myself a nice Digital SLR and I've been wanting to get out and take some pictures. This is my first winter in Ohio. I packed up my camera equipment and threw my neglected 10 year old MTB that's never even had a tune up in the back of the SUV and went to the bike trail that I ride on a regular basis in nice weather. It was 19F when I got on the bike. There were a few other people out walking around but I didn't see any other bikes. I was out for about an hour and only rode about 6 miles because I was mostly just wanting to play around with the camera. Had a blast! I dang near killed myself on a large patch of ice on the way back but somehow managed to slide across it sideways and keep myself and the bike upright. Traction was satisfactory as long as I kept on the snow but that wasn't always an option.
Here's the patch of ice that just about did me in!
