Rode home from work during a bit of a snowstorm yesterday.
I had forgotten how much fun it was, and I was pleasantly surprised to
see how wonderfully the Trek 820 handled the 4+ inches of blown and
drifted snow and the coating of ice that was under it. It had been many
years since I last rode in the winter and I had forgotten how stable the
bike really was. Much better than a car or truck in my estimation, colder
but safer. The studded tires were magnificently efficient. I was able to
circumvent traffic and felt much less vulnerable to getting slid into by
some hapless motorist. Anyone who hasnít tried riding in the snow yet
should really give it a try. Itís fun and not as dangerous as you might think.
