Biked in this morning during our "big" snowstorm. During the ride I'm getting slush spat at me from cars but as I pass people trudging through the snow I get thumbs up and people giving me a "way to go!". Tested my winter gear and some of it is inadequate in these conditions. Duly noted. Once on the bike trail I notice that there is only one other set of bike tracks. (there is someone out there like me!) Feeling good about the ride, the fixed gear proved to be much more controlled and I arrive at my work. I work with kids. One kid looks at me with disgust and says "why do you ride your bike in the snow?"
I say, "why not?".
He says "You need to get a car" in his most disgusted voice.
I just smile and keep on banging the inch of slush of the drive train.
Man it was a good ride.
