    So how many of you are still riding?

    Fess up wussies!

    I'm guilty. I have my Trek in the attic because ex-gf hated seeing it parked on the living room. It's a pia to get it down every time I wanna ride so I just haven't done much. Looking forward to get some saddle time, in about 4 months or so, when temperatures come back down to PuertoRican standards.

    Who knows, maybe I'll even try to cold weather riding thing. My Americanization process it's been progressing nicely. During all the last cold fronts I haven't felt the need to fire up the propane heater. A jacket has done the trick just fine.

    Who wants to make a pledge to get some riding done this month? Come on! Bring it!

    I went on a ride this morning, and I bet it's colder here than there. Luckily I have some extra weight to provide insulation.

    Are you kidding? I never stop riding, I just have to wait a few days for the rain to stop. Next week I need to do my birthday ride, a mile for each year, it's really starting to add up too.
    Crap Rube, you are in Florida, get the h*ll out there!!

    I'd say Rube needs a new GF if she can't share living space with 5 or 6 bikes.

    I'm getting pretty long in the tooth and wide in the waist, I can't ride with the same intensity I used to, but I kind of putter around a few times every week. Some weeks more than others.

    I recently built up a bike and that's sort of given me an extra incentive. I've ridden at least one of my 4 bikes every day in the last few weeks.

    Part of it because here in Savannah the temps have been nice and cool - I only regret the shorter days...

    Truth be told, I haven't been doing much riding at all lately. The only reason I got my bike was to commute on and having a hard time motivating myself to ride with no job to commute to. I really should do some maintenance rides to stay in shape for if/when I get a job.

    But dude, you can ride around the block and park back in. You do have house shores don't you? That's commute in my book.

    These people just don't understand what it's like to ride around Winter Springs in 65-70F and risk hypothermia or frostbite on the winkie.

    I ride to work every day because I don't have a car. It's not even cold here, though.

    Still riding, although last week left for work (in the dark) in the low 20's a couple times - 14 miles one way at that temp and the water bottle is half frozen by the time I get to work. Local ski mountain opens next week so I won't have much time for riding after that.

    I do a club ride a couple of times a month. I did 36 miles Thanksgiving morning so I could eat extra pecan pie later on.

    I also try to ride when doing errands, if I'm not getting too many items to strap on the rack of my hybrid. I love Doohickie's photo above with all the stuff loaded on his bike.

    I may have to do that. I am doing some contract work in Edmonton right now and the snowy roads are just no fun.
