Have you ever tried mountain bike touring in the winter?
I am more a fair-weather biker, and I know that the weather in this area has been a bit screwy.
I lived in Ottawa most of my life, and I used to love hiking through the greenbelt and other areas like that. I would spend a lot of time on the skis, or just hiking through the snow. If I were still working, I would be commuting in this weather because the streets are still in good shape.
I am so used to the cold and snow that I am almost at a lack of what to do for outdoor activities at this time. I am so used to hiking in the snow, but I could go mountain biking as it is now. I am not complaining, the more reason that I have to bike, the better; but this is just weird, usually I am hiking or cross country skiing.
