Merry Christmas from Minnesota!
Long time reader (a few months, anyway), first time poster.
I've been biking to work for a couple of years, but never considered it once it got cold out, much less snowy. I stumbled upon these formus after looking for advice on fixing my bike. Once I started reading, I realized- Duh! Cold and snow shouldn't stop me! I very rarely drive to work- in fact, as of a couple days ago, I only put 2,890 miles on my vehicle in the last year.
I'm a patrol officer for a suburban police department, and have joined the bike patrol there as well. It's been a great expierence. The looks people give you, and the ability to sneak up on people and situations is great!
