If you're not riding with a psychedelic gecko on your shirt, you ARE having a substandard experience.
Which Branch?purdue is close enough to chicago for government work.
maybe A Bombs, but not U2 Spy plane Photographs..
We had a series of brutal winters in the early to mid 1970s. Stretches where the daily highs were below 0 F. What has done it for us this winter is the wind. It seems any time it got cold, the wind would pick up. Nothing like being out in -15 F with 20 mph winds.
We have met the enemy and they is us.
Naw. But I'm older than I ever have been and the repetation is begining to chill my love the winter wonder land. I need to either move farther north / rural so there are more things to do in the snowy woods or farther south so I can road-bike and camp all year 'round. The shorter good-snow-urban environment-getting-in-the-way-of-bicycling-the-highways just doesn't cut it. Today is't just right to ride the snow singletracks but it's snowing and I don't have goggles yet... next year though.
FB4K - Every October we wrench on donated bikes. Every December, a few thousand kids get bikes for Christmas. For many, it is their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.
Disclaimer: 99% of what I know about cycling I learned on BF. That would make, ummm, 1% experience. And a lot of posts.
26 year old Minnesotan here. **** this winter...
It's finally above freezing here, and it's so nice to finally see all that nasty frozen stuff outside thaw!
