i just wanted to share why riding during winter is hard. I have been commuting as much as i can this winter and some days it feels like i am competing in a cyclo cross event with the amount of times i have to jump off my bike and walk and run it.
so let me show you why its impossible to ride on some of the roads here.
This ^ when the some of the only safe routes have conditions of roads as shown about it makes it a handful.
sheer ice valleys, combined with semi packed snow that gets cut threw and causes you to lose speed, combined with ice underneath of it.
it has been fun though, especially with the look on peoples face when they see you made it into work via bike.
anyone else have any stories of road conditions that just were down right unfriendly?
