Local article on winter commuting

I don't hang out here much, but am an avid bicyclist and now that I have moved to the southeastern corner of Wisconsin, I plan to commute to work regularly (it will be a 10 mile ride each way). Today, this article ran in our local newspaper. Thought I'd share.

Wow, that's pretty detailed for an article on winter commuting. It also spotlights 3 different riders with 3 different reasons for riding, their equipment and each one's approach. Pretty good I thought.

Great article. Nice that they mentioned the 3-foot rule.
