Wouldnt it be grand that if this winter was like the winter of 2005/2006? In Aug of 2005 I bought my first recumbent which was one of smarter moves I ever made. It was late in the season and I just couldnt get enough of riding it. When I got home I was sad the ride was over since I had no pain at all. But---the winter 05/06 turned out to have one or two days every month for that whole winter that I could ride. That means that temps got up to at least 60 as I hate riding when colder.
