Does anyone here cycle, or have an idea of what the cycling would be during the month of January in Spokane, Washington? If so, would it be better to ride a road bike, hybrid, or mountain bike (with studded tires perhaps?) for day to day riding.
I have an offer to lecture as an adjunct professor during the January term at one of the colleges there. I have always figured that, if and when I retire, my second career would be teaching at university so this is sort of a start on that. I would be free about 50% of the time as best I can figure provided I have the lectures squared away before January. I still haven't decided to accept. I am working on the premise that I will get to start riding again in another month or so. Also, I would probably drive rather than fly so could take one or more bikes with me.
I fully realize it won't be like a January in Texas, but I would like to hear from anyone who rides in the winter in the Spokane area.
