    I think I posted about being slower in the winter last year. It's true, cold weather slows me down.

    When I had a 33-mile round-trip commute it was a real problem. With my 7-mile round-trip commute I have now, it really doesn't matter.

    I thought something didnt seem right. Is that what that thumping sound was?

    Edit: yeah, must have been guilty of selective, optimistic memory. I checked on the way home today and averaged 19 to 24 in the flats.

    I just put my studded tires on, so I'm about one gear lower than normal on all my routes. I don't look on this as a bad thing. Winter is a time to slow down and relax. And to prep my x-country ski bases. I'm looking forward to skiing here in Saskatoon. There will be more consistent snow than we had in Calgary, and gentler downhills that won't stress my knees as much.
