When will you quit riding this year?
Quit? Not gonna happen, I'm riding it out!
I may ride all year, depending on how nasty the winter is
I already quit!

Well, it's coming into summer here right now -- although that's the time I'd be most likely to quit riding, given my general dislike of heat stroke and skin cancer. Ironically, in just 38 days time, I'm going to experience about the coldest riding conditions I've experienced in years, including a possibility of summer snow!
never, never, never. Have snow, will ride.
I'll probably quit sometime in the afternoon on December 31st. Start up again on New Year's Day. (Caveat: Rain may cancel).

never, that's the beauty of mountain biking.
I will commute through this winter.
Winter.. what is that.. oh yeah 60 degree's I can ride through that. I love California
Haven't rode through an midwest yet ... always stop in fall. BUT this year I want to see what 0F windchill feels like on the bike.
Used to run down to -20F with winds chills of -40F.

I stud em up at the first sige of black ice and go through the winter.
Achieve your goals: Attitude is everything:
Not at all, I'm continuing to commute all winter, plus I'll be doing indoor training rides on Sunday nights at the local track.
I quit when it's below 35į and the wind is over 10. This usually means December through February are indoor trainer and weight training months.
iíve already quit, albeit temporarily (for ramadan)... i wanted to ride to work this morning, but my wife advised against it cause of my fasting... i donít think i'll be getting any riding done until ramadan's done. when the monthís over, i hope it isnít too cold so that i can at least get to ride before the cold/snow hits. iím still contemplating on giving winter riding a try though... i just iíll just have to wait and see how bad this yearís winterís going to be up in toronto.
Just as soon I get this teleportation thing worked out.... Well I guess I might be biking a while longer.

First winter back on the bike, don't know if I'll do the Snow & Ice, but don't mind the cold or wet. Only time will tell, and if all else fails the Fluid 2 is ready to go. I have no intentions of loosing what I had too much fun gaining or for that matter re-gaining what I had so much fun loosing, the past few months!
quit? for winter? Dont be daft
Besides, I have no other way to get to work....
Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.
Will be riding all winter, this year....
I figure by the time it becomes real cold and snow is on the ground I will be in my car follwing a moving van heading to Boca Raton Florida.

I ride year around as much as I can. About the only time I don't ride is if it's raining below 40F, although, I think I might try it a few times this year to see if I can adapt. If it's snowing I'll ride my mountain bike, but only if the roads/paths are passable. I tried riding in 8 inchs of snow last year and only got about 1/4 of a mile before I turned back. Last winter, only big snow stopped me from riding outdoors, and I just did the trainer on those days. Basically, if it's not raining or snowing, I go ride.
This area (DC area) is pretty good for riding year around. I think I was only off the bike and on the trainer for about 3 weeks last winter due to a couple big snows we got, which were definitely out of the ordinary. I'm hoping this winter is a bit more mild.
Sometimes you just let the rabbits run, but sometimes you gotta let the dogs run.
I used to quit if it was below freezing, or if roads were wet, snow covered or dark (kind of a lot of rules). This year, I'm going to try to keep it up all winter! The posts on this thread are a great inspiration. Thanks!
Got booties . . .will ride.
I dont understand the question.......
What????? and miss some of the loveliest riding days of the Year.
No chance! of quitting thats just what would be a car bound woosies excuse...
